From research I believe you are asking about Guillain-Barre syndrome which is an uncommon disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and numbness in your extremities are usually the first symptoms. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralysing your whole body.

The exact cause of Guillain-Barre syndrome is unknown, but it is often preceded by an infectious illness such as a respiratory infection or the stomach flu. Luckily, Guillain-Barre syndrome is relatively rare, affecting only one or two people per 100,000.

In its most severe form, Guillain-Barre syndrome is a medical emergency requiring hospitalisation. There's no known cure for Guillain-Barre syndrome, but several treatments can ease symptoms and reduce the duration of the illness. Most people do recover completely.

The diagnosis is usually made by nerve conduction studies. With prompt treatment by intravenous immunoglobulins or plasmapheresis, together with supportive care, the majority of sufferers will recover completely. Guillain - Barré syndrome is rare, but is one of the leading causes of acute non-trauma-related paralysis in the world. The syndrome is named after the French physicians Georges Guillain and Jean Alexandre Barré, who first described the condition in 1916.

Beret disease is commonly known as Guillain-Barré Syndrome. It is a rare disease of the nervous system that occurs when the body's own immune responses go a little awry. What happens is that when a body gets some infection, it will always produce antibodies to combat these foreign bodies that have caused the infection. Sometimes, these antibodies may, however, begin to target the body's own cells instead of the foreign bodies (you could say it is an internal civil war of the body!).
The common signs and symptoms of the syndrome include weakening of the lower limbs first and eventually moves upwards towards the arms and the facial muscles. Bulber weakness may occur of the lower cranial nerve is affected. In this case, the patient would have difficulty in chewing, swallowing and speaking. Some patients may also need respiratory assistance. Patients may also complain of back pain and sometimes temporary bladder problems may also occur. Some patients may lose their sensation of pain and temperature to some extent too.
It is not, however, known yet what exactly causes this autoimmune condition to develop.
