Craig, I suppose it’s possible that it’s Guillain-Barré syndrome, but unfortunately I have to say that from this side of the screen it sounds a lot like MS too. What counts against GBS is the fact that it didn’t start at your hands and feet and worked itself up to the centre of the body. The best would be to see a good neurologist (I can refer you to one if you live in or near Pretoria) for a second opinion. Good luck.
