Hi Cori Puma

No, GBS doesn’t cause nausea. The medication might, but not the disease itself.

First of all, you need to be aware, that GBS is an autoimmune disease.
So every kind of infection, illnes, virus or what so ever, can trigger the sympthoms again and again.
Back when I got diagnosed with GBS with the age of 11y, my doctors kept me on antibiothics for as long as my body was stable again, to avoid any infections.

I had GBS 18y ago and got diagnosed with CIDP half a year ago.
I know that I have to watch out. Less is more. Don’t force her or yourself to get her back on track by a 100% as soon as possible. This disease cause is rooted deeply and needs time to recover.
I was even suspended from sports during first and middle school, since physical exercise can trigger a relapse in early states.
I know this is easier said than done when it comes to children but as my mother used to tell me back then “the calmer you are, the quicker it will go away”.

If you should have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
