Issues with Guillain-Barre are totally overblown and exaggerated, but here are my thoughts: 1. Incidence of GBS has been far more related to vaccine rather than actual infection, BUT a recent study showed lower incidence after COVID-19 vaccine than natural incidence, so, like swine flu, likely NO relationship. 2. Your symptoms are not c/w GBS, but suggest more likely LONG-COVID-19.
