Reply To: Hospital Pharmacy — GBS and Vaccination: Usually Unrelated
I developed GBS 18 days after receiving the flu vaccination. I saw my neurologist during my initial ER visit. After a thorough interview and assessment he strongly felt i had GBS from the flu vaccinations and documented as such. I had the usually testing including spinal tap, MRI and CT scans and was admitted for IVIG therapy. A Infectious Disease MD was consulted and ordered more tests and scans and he concluded there was no other cause for me developing GBS other than the vaccination and he documented as such also. I did not get my GBS from the flu, resp infection or from a pimple on my ass. I got it from the FLU VACCINATION!
