What is guillain barre disease?

A:
Guillain barre disease is a rare disorder. People who have it find their immune systems attacking their nerves. Besides, they feel weak in the extremities.

Symptoms are:

  • Fast heart rate
  • Pins sensations in the toes, fingers, ankles, or wrists
  • Difficulty moving eyes
  • Difficulty swallowing and speaking
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Inability to walk
  • Weak legs

Scientists still have no idea what causes the syndrome, though it usually happens after a contagious disease such as the stomach flu. Unfortunately, there’s also no treatment for it. But most people can recover.
