Ditto on the memory problems. Also, I had a great deal of word-finding issues, would say, “Ummmm…” a lot, like I hit a skip in speech. And that was after I was finally released from hospital and off all meds. It was accompanied by a physical sensation – felt like my brain ran into a solid black wall. Don’t know how else to describe it.

It has been 3 years for me and it is finally improving. Guess it has been for the past year or so. Now, it happens in a less dramatic fashion when I’m tired.

GBS may not directly affect the brain but I challenge anyone who says it has no effect whatsoever. GBS attacks the nerve myelin, which facilitates communication between the brain and body. The actual brain matter isn’t damaged but the nerves going to it are.

I think the only people claiming that GBS does not affect the brain are those who haven’t had GBS. 🙂
