Also had MF variant

Welcome to the wonderful world of GBS. I, too, had MF variant – in 1993. Like you, I had rapid onset – symptoms started on a Tuesday, admitted to hospital on Wednesday, diagnosed on Friday, in ICU and on vent by Sunday. I was almost completely paralyzed – all I could do was wiggle my toes! My eyes were closed as well. I was on respirator for two months, but despite that my recovery was quick in term of GBS – to where I am now within a year. Don’t be surprised if you have trouble with your eyelids drooping when you get tired – mine still do at times. I live in USA, but wish I could come to Australia to visit with you – maybe someday!
Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. 🙂
