Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare disorder in which the immune system attacks the nerves. The condition may be triggered by an acute bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms start as weakness and tingling in the feet and legs that spread to the upper body. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing the whole body. In its most severe form GBS is a medical emergency. Most people with the condition must be hospitalized to receive treatment. The exact cause of GBS is unknown, but it is often preceded by an infectious illness such as a respiratory infection or the stomach flu.
There’s no known cure for Guillain-Barré syndrome, but several treatments can ease symptoms and reduce the duration of the illness. Most people recover from GBS, though some may experience lingering effects from it, such as weakness, numbness or fatigue. – mayoclinic.org
