Reply To: Does this sound like GBS?

Are you having balance problems? Is there weakness in your facial muscles affecting chewing, for example? Any vision problems? What about the knee reflex? My PCP wasn’t too concerned the first time I saw him about my developing condition. The second time I saw him, a week later, he found I had no knee reflex and he called the neurologist right away. When I saw the neurologist a few days later, he put me in the hospital the same day. GBS is a medical emergency, particularly if you are starting to have difficulty breathing.
