Since around the beginning of July, I have had a "feeling" of weakness or a tiredness that begins in my knees bilaterally in the morning and ascends to include my shoulders by the end of the day. Only once that I can remember did I feel as though I would lose my leg strength and fall. Furthermore, my hands, although they always "feel" weak, have the strength to at least do things, although my penmanship has gotten worse. Now, a month later, the whole process ascends much earlier in the day. Concurrently, I have been dealing with a dizziness which seems to be related to my vision. Although I have not had double vision (unless I'm really tired), I do have a depth perception problem, which makes me feel dizzy. In addition, I have had some severe lumbo-sacral back pain as well as pain between my shoulder blades. All of these symptoms don't necessarily come at the same time. I have not had a viral illness like which seems to have preceded many of the posts that I have read, so I am curious as to whether anyone else has had a presentation of GBS that is similar to my symptoms that begin with just a weakness "feeling" and dizziness and if it got worse before being diagnosed or if the weakness caused a fall and was the presenting factor that prompted medical attention.
