I was talking with someone and he as telling me about how years ago, his brother came down with what is [supposedly] a very rare and potentially devastating and fatal disease. I won't even attempt to try and spell it out, but spelled phonetically it is called "gee-ohm-buhr-æ", if I understood him correctly.
Does anyone know what this is? I've never heard of it. Apparently it is some kind of nerve disorder that can leave you paralyzed, and possibly even put you into sudden cardiac arrest. And the disease can (according to him) set in literally overnight without any warning signs.
Any information would be welcome.
