Reply To: Vaccine Reaction or GBS???

It could be a neurologic response to the vaccinations. You are doing the right thing in having a neurologist watch it closely. GBS and CIDP cause progressive loss of strength to some degree, generally bilaterally symmetric, and usually progressing from the feet upward. GBS, by definition, reaches maximum loss of strength in eight weeks or less. There are many neuropathies, however, and much variation within each type of neuropathy. Only a neurologist can sort it out.
