Marion’s Story

Marion Oosthuysen- South African Liaison's GBS Story

I am Marion and I was diagnosed with GBS. It all started when I was cleaning the house and the feeling of pins and needles took over my body. By the next morning, when I went to the doctors, my fingers and toes were completely numb. After several tests, different diagnoses, and numerous doctor appointments, it was finally determined that I had Guillain Barre Syndrome.
