Aah-choo! Yes, its the rainy season once again. Colds and flu are common during these days and anybody can be infected with the flu virus. But do not confuse the colds for the flu. Influenza or flu is a respiratory infection caused by a virus .Since it is the start of the fall flu season, there not only will be the ordinary flu, but also the H1N1 influenza strain, or the Swine Flu.  Any vaccine carries risk of infection, but most likely it will protect you.   The worst possible H1N1 vaccine risk is a possibility of developing GBS, or Guillain Barre Syndrome, an auto-immune condition which involves the break down of the lining of nerve cells. It's worth getting emergency loans for an H1N1  vaccine.Read more at

It is a neurological disorder which follows after the person had viral or bacterial infection. In this the patient will have weakness of legs, tingling sensation in the legs and later causes paralysis. In this the nerves are damaged by the immune process. It is usually seen after the person had bacterial or viral infection. The weakness progress and leads to paralysis. It is mainly diagnosed by the history. The physical examination reveals the weakness of muscles. Reflexes are reduced, knee jerk will be reduced. It is diagnosed by doing cerebrospinal fluid examination which shows increased levels of proteins and white blood cells. There is no cure for GB syndrome. The treatment is only for reducing the symptoms, to prevent the complications and helping to recover fast.
