Guillain-Barre syndrome, an acute disease that can be triggered from various types of infections, can last from several weeks to several years. The life-threatening emergency episode, if treated promptly, can speed recovery and lessen symptoms. Most people who suffer from Guillain-Barre syndrome do not experience lasting effects. Some still feel residual weakness in the limbs several years later.
