Reply To: GBS x2 in Alabama – my first forum

My choice of words that stress had “triggered” my GBS was incorrect.  The stress triggered an infection that manifest itself as a “shingles like rash” and the “rash like infection” was the probable cause of my GBS.  Since there are several factors that can trigger the onset, there was no conclusive cause found, even though all the normal test were performed.  I had a classic case of GBS.
I can assure you the “shakes” or nervousness I am feeling is not imaginary!  My hands do shake slightly, enough to be annoying, but I do not consider slight shaking, tremors.  The internal nervous feeling I have is very really, even though it is not manifest outwardly, thank goodness!
