2. Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy

Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (AIDP) is perhaps the most common of all forms of GBS, with more patients in the United States having this type than any other. The condition is typified by the peripheral nerves and nerve roots becoming inflamed. The myelin sheath that protects these nerves will also be destroyed. The most common symptom is that the patients muscles begin to weaken. This symptom will typically start manifesting in the lower part of the body and gradually move up and affect the upper part of the body also. One thing that makes this unusual in comparison to the others is that it does not usually follow an infection.
