Hi, I just returned home from the hospital where my youngest daughters father lies in a bed at the age of 40 . one day he was fine and the net he was unable to walk and talk normally and has tingling in both hands and feet . We have been divorced for 10 years but have remained great friends . We are all concerned. The doctors have informed us that he might have gillian barre' syndrome . The doctors told us that there really isn't a cure . I will keep you posted as to his pronosis. Good luck with your daughter.
