Over course of several days, persistent gait difficulty noted. Sent back to ED for IVF and imaging on 1/25/21. MR Brain negative for acute event (ischemia or bleed) and labs essentially normal. Patient received IVF (1 L NS) and discharged. Symptoms persisted and outpatient work up ensued. ENT evaluation for vertigo negative on Monday Feb 1, 2021 (ENG negative and no response to Epley maneuever) Neurology consulted and saw patient on Feb 4, 2021. Examination abnormal (primarily with "very strongly positive Romberg sign, reduced vibration in lower extremities, and 1+ patellar reflexes and absent ankle jerks" Working diagnosis of suspected Guillan Barre (post vaccination) Subsequent Testing: C spine MRI-negative for demyelinating lesions, ischemic changes or significant degenerative myelopathy T-spine MRI-negative for demyelinating lesions, ischemic changes or significant degenerative myelopathy EMG/NCV-2/11/21-"essentially normal study" Lumbar puncture-normal OP and acellular CSF.
