Pain in fingertips and toes after gastroenteritis is Guillain-Barre?

Symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome typically happen in a specific order. The first symptom is tingling or pain in the fingertips and toes. That progresses to weakness or pain in the legs that can cause difficulty with walking. That's followed by loss of reflexes - for example, the knee doesn't jerk when tapped.

So if I am having pain in the toe yesterday and no both fingertips should I be trying to get IGIG therapy to prevent from worsening to paralysis?
