GBS is caused by your immune system's reaction to a virus (could be any virus). So be careful during this time to avoid picking up a virus -- wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer often, clean work surfaces well, try to avoid touching your face, avoid vaccinations. (I'm not normally an "anti-vax'er," but for someone with a history of GBS, even the vaccine companies recommend against it.)
Did you have a flu shot within 4 weeks of being diagnosed with GBS? If so you need to check out the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, VICP. My GBS was caused by the flu vaccine, a 1 in 1,000,000 chance. I have a claim being filed with the VICP. Attorneys will file your case. They are directly compensated by the Federal Govt. Google the VICP and find an attorney.
