The treatment for Guillian Barre is plasmapheresis and IgG. I would recommend that you get continuous injections of IgG so that you will not have too many symptoms of Guillan Barre.

Guillian Barre is an autoimmune disorder that causes a person to produce antibodies to the nerve cells of his body causing the symptoms that you have. Plasmapheresis removes these antibodies and then causes the person to be cured. This is how you prevent and recover from Guillian Barre. I advise you to consult a doctor and get the appropriate management as you see fit.
