Guillain-Barre Syndrome Symptoms & Causes

Guillain-Barre syndrome occurs most commonly in men over the age of 50 with the first symptoms usually being tingling sensations in the legs. A related, but less common, ocular variant of the condition is known as Miller Fisher syndrome, which causes paralysis in the eyes. 

Symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome can last from weeks to years. Once noticeable leg symptoms arise, Guillain-Barre can spread quickly to the torso and arms and make movement difficult. After Guillain-Barre symptoms begin to decrease, it takes about six months for most people to fully recover. 

Though the majority of people overcome the worst effects of Guillain-Barre, many can experience long term side effects such as muscle weakness, chronic numbness, and fatigue. 

Common symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome include:

  • Prickly, tingling sensations in the joints of the hands, feet, ankles, and wrists
  • Weakness in the legs that gradually moves to the torso and arms
  • Difficulty walking or climbing stairs
  • Difficulty with facial movement and control
  • Breathing problems and shortness of breath 
  • Muscle pain and weakness
  • Chronic pain
