I also had MF variant of GBS – in 1993. I had rapid descending paralysis, from my head (also started with my eyes) to my toes. At my worse was completely paralyzed – vent and all – except for my toes, thoughout I could wiggle them!
I was told as well, MF starts with the head area and progresses downward, traditional GBS usually starts in the extremeties and travels upward.
