    Guillain-Barre syndrome (Guillain-Barré syndrome) is a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves. Tingling and weakness in extremities are usually the first symptoms.

    In many instances, the abnormal sensations and symmetrical weakness spread to the arms and upper body. These symptoms can increase in intensity until some muscles cannot be used at all and, when it gets severe, the person is almost completely paralyzed.

    Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is a very rare but serious condition that affects the nerves. It mainly affects the feet, hands and limbs, causing problems such as numbness, weakness and pain. It is a life-threatening condition but can be treated and most people will eventually make a full recovery while some may be left with long-term problems. It affects people of all ages, but chances of getting it to increase as one gets older.
