We have cidp, so I cannot offer detailed info on gbs as we are not as experienced in that category. That being said, the gbs DOES NOT make you more or less suseptible to virus’s. Your exposure to children just puts you in a vulnerable position. One connection that the two DO have is that when your immune system turns on to ward off the virus, it can irritate your residuals from gbs. Many on the site mention stuggling a little more when they are sick.
Regarding the increased weakness you are experiencing, maybe you can get your old records and ask for a ncv/emg test to compare to an old one to make sure that there is no further damage, just to be sure.

Also, some people start to notice for a lack of a better way to explain it more residuals at about 10 years post. They liken it to post polio symptoms. Maybe you can pm a member named Ali, she is good at explaining gbs and residuals.
