There are many neurological diseases similar to GBS that may cause paralysis, such as Transverse Myelitis. TM is a rare neurological disorder that is part of a spectrum of neuroimmunologic diseases of the central nervous system that include: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, Optic Neuritis, and Neuromyelitis Optica. However, I would not rule out GBS with your symptoms and the acute onset. A 2nd opinion is advisable – you need one for peace of mind…your current dx may indicate a tumor from what I read.
