what are the symptoms of guillain-barre syndrome?

Dr. Jonathan Megerian

Motor weakness: Guillian-barre is an inflammatory disease of the nerve roots that results in pain and progressive motor weakness. It can cause paralysis, breathing failure and problems with the cardiovascular system. If it is suspected, it should be evaluated and treated emergently. Proper treatment can be lifesaving and result in full or near full recovery.
