    Hi Alison, when you say 'full recovery', do you meant that literally? By that I mean, did your friend recover from the fatigue symptoms which for many people, myself included, linger much longer than many other more

    obvious symptoms such as double vision and walking difficulties etc. ( I had the Miller Fisher variant of GBS in June this year. Fatigue is the difficult to cope with thing for me.

    Hi Roddy, Well, I've never been so popular!! We all make computer gaffs. I don't know anything about variants of GBS and it's many years ago that my 'friend' had it in his 50s/early 60s. He went back to going to Rock & Roll nights, if that helps. I also remembered another lady, in her 70s I guess, who also said she'd made a full recovery from it. Fingers crossed that you will too, but it will take several months to reach that magic 'back to normal' stage and the GBS Society are your best source of info in the meantime. Best of luck, Alison
