When I was first sick, my hands and arms shook a lot. I could not hold onto anything very well and my food and dishes would go flying. Holding a sharp knife was dangerous. Sometimes my legs would jerk, too, but now it only happens once in a while. GBS affects the peripheral nerves, so our arms and legs are affected the most and the longest. Also, I would have the sensation of my entire body vibrating when I would lie down and I know several other people had the same experience. Just sort of shook all over. 😎
