My wife has a recent diagnosis of Guillain-Barrè Syndrome and wants to raise awareness. Ask her anything!
Ask your question and I'll be typing her responses.

Husband started a gofundme for rehabilitation: Please dont feel obliged. I prefer spreading awareness https://www.gofundme.com/2w9a9kk
EDIT#1: mary and i are so overwhelmed with this awareness and generosity from everyone whos helped - she finally stopped bottling her emotions and is crying from appreciation.
EDIT #2:- Its time to end it here, we had a lot of fun raising awareness & we hope you learnt something about gbs that could potentially save someone from needing ICU care and disability. We will endeavor to continue answering questions tomorrow onward so keep sending them :)
-gbs isn't a joke. If you have severe tingles, get to the hospital.
EDIT#3: and we are BACK answering questions because awareness is awareness. Speak to people, tell them to be wary of signs. For those who say it's rare, look at the comments below, tonnes of people have been diagnosed with it.
