twenty year difference
I had a second occurence of GBS twenty years later which is almost the same amount of time that you mentioned in your life – 12 to 33. I did not have any residuals because back in 1986 I had a mild case. This year I got it a second time and it was much worse. But, looking on the bright side, the stress that I was under for the past 6 years brought mine on – I am sure.
It is rare for it to occur so I would not panic yet. Six months later I am now walking – although tentatively. I attribute my lack of residuals to the supplements that I am taking.
