I was misdiagnosed too by my GP. Having general weakness. But being dissatisfied I searched the internet and concluded it was a neuro problem. Was mentally ready for GBS and painful tests. Booked an appointment next day, got diagnosed with GBS after LP, EMG etc and the day after my plasmapheresis started. Stayed in hospotal for a week and able to walk unaided a day after. My conclusion is the earlier the treatment starts less severe the plateau phase is and less time required for recovery.
