Hi Breakdown41,
That’s similar to my husband with the salivary gland. Come to find out, it never grew anything in the petri dish. It wasn’t an infection. But now we think it was an attack by his immune system. More and more, after meeting with a great rheumatologist, we believe that he has an auto immune disease in the lupus category. Maybe Sjogren’s disease. That sounds a bit like yours. Look up Sjogren’s syndrome and you’ll see the gastro and nerve symptoms as well as dry eyes, mouth, and other miseries. Everything I read says it takes up to 7 years to be diagnosed.

Thanks for your response. Maybe you have Sjogren’s? I think GBS may not be our answer, but similar symptoms minus the paralysis.
