You definitely need a spinal tap (lumbar puncture) to confirm a GBS related diagnosis. Any elevated protein levels will show up in the spinal fluid.

It can take even emergency room doctors a week to figure out what’s wrong with a GBS patient, so if you can talk to a physician with the information laid out by Jethro, you may be able to get a proper diagnosis sooner and get the treatment you need!

Best of luck.
