Guillain-Barre Syndrome

I’ve had this syndrome. So has Tennessee Tech basketball coach Mike Sutton. Here is a link to an ESPN story on You Tube. It’s a tad over dramatic and doesn’t provide a ton of detail on Guillain Barre, but for those who know nothing about GBS (pretty much everyone) it’s a good introduction to this thing.

    My friends sent me this site and I’m touched I had GBS and died and came back to life. 🙂 Back in 1992! I’m fully recovered! Thanks for your story!

    I too, had GBS, died and came back! Mine was in 1974! I am fully recovered, but the experience did change my life!

    I had GBS in 1974 and it was a scary experience. I do not agree at all that this story was a tad over dramatic. I could walk again after four weeks of paralysis with a lot of physical therapy. This coach in the story is still in a wheel chair. It’s the not knowing if you will be able to walk again that was scarey to me.

    MY NEPHEW HAS THE MILLER-FISCHER VARIANT OF GBS. WE JUST RECENTLY FOUND OUT AND ARE NOW TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HIS CONDITION. HE IS ONLY 15 YEARS OF AGE AND HE IS JUST STARTED TO MOVE HIS LEGS AGAIN. OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH HIM AND WE PRAY THAT OTHERS WHO GET THIS PULL THROUGH ALSO.

    I ALSO KNOW MY NEPHEW WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS ALSO CAUSE HE’S A BIG BASKETBALL FAN AND PLAYS AND COACHES BASKETBALL. VERY TOUCHING
