Guillain-Barre Syndrome Symptoms, Causes and Diagnostics

The first signs of Guillain-Barre syndrome appear in the extremities. Legs and hands are the first places under threat; the disease moves from the very end of each limb to the upper parts, soon covering the entire extremity. People who have this disease report numb sensation as the first sign. Their muscles become very weak, the body gets too sensitive to any touch, and the patient soon discovers it is difficult to balance. He or she can easily get lost in space. These symptoms usually worsen during the following days/weeks. In the end, the condition gets better. However, serious cases do not exclude continuous problems with movement and breathing.
