Read the article in this post!
I wanted to comment on that article and urge everyone to read it. It explains the differences between the syndromes well. Too often on this site, we use the generic term GBS, which I believe does a disservice to many of our readers. There are 3 different syndromes discussed and it will be very beneficial for readers to know exactly what the person posting is speaking about. I myself had GBS and I was always confused regarding what
I was reading at this site versus what my neurologist was telling me. After reading that article those differences were reconciled.
