I also had GBS twice…once in 86 and the second time a year ago. Mine was also much worse the second time. I was wondering why you got it? I did not get any flu shots or immunizations, no flu or stomach ailments…the only thing that was extreme was the stress in my life. Stress is not listed for causing GBS but I think down the road they will realize that it contributes to it. Otherwise why would I have gotten it twice during the major stresses of my life?
