I think by now you must have researched about it, but anyways, my dad had a similar syndrome but it's miller fisher. Guillain Barre - your antibodies attack your immune system, the paralysis starts up then goes downwards, ten miller fisher - the paralysis starts downwards then upwards, or I could have it wrong and must be the other way around. My dad had MFS exactlt two years, when he had an anti flu shot, it's a very rare allergic reaction to this shot, of course doctors wont tell you about it but if you searched the forums, you will see. It's a very rare allergci reaction to it and a very rare sickness. too bad my dad was one of those hit by those rare rare scenario. He had an anti-flu shot, then weeks later he had a flu, so the antibodies attcked the virus, but then the antibodies didn't stop attacking, and continued to attack until his immune system were being attacked too. The difference is that, I think GBS is more life threatening  :-\

sis cookerbell, so sorry ngayon ko lang nabasa reply mo. The neurologists checking on me are not really sure if GBS talaga ang sakit ko. They call this neuropathy and until now hindi pa rin makita ang cause. Yung sa akin kasi since Sept yung lower limb ko lang ang naapektuhan. Hindi na cya tumaas. Sa GBS daw kasi mabilis tumaas usually 24 to 48 hrs lang. I am taking lyrica as my pain killer pero yung cure talaga hindi pa alam. Naka-recover ba ang dad mo? Yung GBS yung start sa baba pataas. I am always praying na mawala na lang tong sakit ko. Everyday nakamedyas ako kasi ang sakit sakit. Mahina na rin ang paa ko, good thing I can still do normal activities, yun nga lang medyas and rubber shoes forever.

sis luvleine8,

sige icheck ko yan. Gusto ko talaga mghanap ng makakasharean ng experience ko.

Hi Anne. How are you now? I don't know anyone who has Guillain Barre, but I have encountered questions about that condition in MD Health Forum. I've read that most people recover from GBS. I sincerely hope that your condition improves.

Here are posts about GBS:

Sad to hear this story...  :(
I would just like to comment... :)
Your father has a Cranial nerve Variant...
I would just like to correct your term "allergy".. Yes it's a form of hypersensitivity but It's not an allergy... Your father is genetically predisposed into developing this reaction to the vaccine, also depende din sa immune status ng father mo...
Other thing, Your father has MFS diba, so tama ka dun sa mula taas pababa (descending).... Siya yung naiiba,, Kasi dun sa ibang variant ng GBS mula baba pataas (ascending paralysis)-- ito yung karaniwan...

Sana maging ok na father mo... hugs...
whatever.... ;)
