Podcast #18 The Hurt Locker

Steve Shuttleworth or "Even Stephen" as his family call him, is a naturally fit person who can compete in endurance sporting events easily when most of us would struggle and yet a couple of years ago he was paralyzed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system begins to attack the peripheral nervous system. Antibodies and lymphocytes attack and damage the peripheral nerves causing weakness/paralysis (motor nerves affected) and/or abnormal sensations and pain (sensory nerves affected). It can present in many different ways making it difficult to diagnose in the early stages. First symptoms include varying degrees of weakness or tingling sensations in the legs. In many cases this spreads to the upper body and in severe cases leads to almost total paralysis. GBS can be dangerous if the muscle weakness affects the chest muscles responsible for breathing. The symptoms can occur quite rapidly over hours to days or slowly over weeks. Most patients reach peak weakness within the first 4 weeks. It is a rare disease and the cause is not known but GBS usually follows a viral or bacterial infection.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/anthony-byrnes/message
