Rhogam Guillain-barre Syndrome Causes and Reviews
Guillain-Barre syndrome is a rare disorder that causes your immune system to attack your peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS nerves connect your brain and spinal cord with the rest of your body. Damage to these nerves makes it hard for them to transmit signals. As a result, your muscles have trouble responding to your brain. No one knows what causes the syndrome. Sometimes it is triggered by an infection, surgery, or a vaccination.
The first symptom is usually weakness or a tingling feeling in your legs. The feeling can spread to your upper body. In severe cases, you become almost paralyzed. This is life-threatening. You might need a respirator to breathe. Symptoms usually worsen over a period of weeks and then stabilize.
Guillain-Barre can be hard to diagnose. Possible tests include nerve tests and a spinal tap. Most people recover. Recovery can take a few weeks to a few years. Treatment can help symptoms, and may include medicines or a procedure called plasma exchange.

Had RhoGAM after childirth in 1972 and 1975. In 1992 I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. I now have stage 3 liver fibrosis and inflammation. I went through interferon-ribavirin treatment for hepatitis C recently, but did not clear the virus successfully. Did anyone else get hepatitis C from RhoGAM?
