Accurate giagnostic of Gullain Barre Syndrome
Ilana, was a perfectly healthy 42 year old Ukrainian woman, a person with no medical worries further than the occasional headache.
In the fall of 2011, Ilana was struck with a common virus. Following this uneventful disease she began to experience weakness in her legs which was accompanied by numbness below her knees.
The Ukrainian physicians offered a diagnosis of Neuropathy, hospitalized her but failed to reach a consensus regarding the treatment of her condition. They medicated her with heavy doses of steroids. Ilana and her family were concerned about this treatment.
Ilana’s daughter sent her medical material to iMER for review by the Medical Advisor, Professor Raphael Melamed who proposed that Ilana be treated by Professor Avinoam Reches, a world known specialist of Neurology at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.
At Hadassah, Ilana underwent a battery of tests that included an M.R.I. and an Electromyography (E.M.G.). Based on the results of these sophisticated examinations, Prof. Reches discovered that Ilana had been suffering from G.B.S., her body was rallying and she started to recuperate. He gave immediate orders to gradually stop the steroid treatment – this is her letter:
When a person is ill, he needs understanding and support and the appropriate treatment to address his condition. This is what I received at Hadassah and from the iMER team. I was dealt with in positive manner which was essential for me and my recovery.
