    Yes it does. Pins and needles are a classic symptom of anxiety. It's not GBS sweetie. (((hugs))) x

    It's much, much, much more likely to be anxiety. Pins and needles is common. I know how hard it is to accept when your mind is so sure of something but if this is taking over your life you need to treat the anxiety

    My ex had guillian barre, it's very rare and more common in men. I've got Generalised anxiety and get pins and needles in my arm and the top of my foot - I didn't realise it was a symptom of anxiety but reading through others people's symptoms it's common. Rest assured you won't have GB

      We did lots of research on it and he didn't even mention pins and needles it was a different sensation to that he didn't even have a cold. He made a full recovery in a few months and was back at his physical job in within 3. I'm always thinking the worse is going to happen and have to talk myself out thinking like that. Keep off Google!

    You have symptoms because you fixate on something you have read, you know yourself deep down thats all it is. You've been obsessed with GBS for a while,and pretty clearly anxiety is the problem, thats just what health anxiety is. You'll drive yourself crazy if you dont stay off Google,your just digging a big whole of needless worry for yourself. Keep talking to drs and therapists and be honest about your fixation, and stay off google! There are ways to get past things like this but you need to be honest with the medical profession and you need to address your fixation and not give in to it
