Reply To: Urgent. GBS misdiagnosis

I am so sorry you and your partner are going through this!

As GH asked…did they give your partner a spinal tap? (Lumbar puncture?) That is the only way to confirm GBS.

I’ve never heard of organ failure with this condition but I guess if he has a severe enough case, almost anything could happen.

The doctors have their jobs cut out for them. GBS is not easily diagnosed and definitely isn’t the first thing they think of, so trying to figure out if there is something else going on as well, that could take them some time.

My heart and prayers go out to you and your partner. I hope all improves and goes well.
