Rosenbaum, 42, who married his wife, Ashley Hebert, 34, after they met on season 7 of the reality show, posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed on his Instagram Story Sunday, writing, "Guillain-Barré anyone? Yeah, I had to Google that one, too."

He also posted a series of videos from his hospital bed in which he reacted to the diagnosis. Symptoms of the disorder include muscle weakness that can spread throughout the body and even result in paralysis in severe cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

You can't get the flu from the flu shot, but there are side effects

  You can't get the flu from the flu shot, but there are side effects Contrary to popular belief, the flu shot cannot give you the flu. However, you may experience some side effects after getting vaccinated."Side effects are not a bad thing," Dr. Ian Nelligan at Stanford Health Care tells Insider. "It is a reminder that one's immune system is responding appropriately to the vaccine." He added that "side effects of the flu vaccine are much more mild than the symptoms of an influenza infection.

"Very surreal, and humbling and crazy, rare," he said. "Things you do every day, like picking up this phone, or buttoning buttons, tying shoelaces, putting on deodorant, just can't do it. Picking up my kids, can't do it. Wiping your ass, maybe TMI, but might have Ashley assist on the next one.

"Just can't really believe it."

He added that the next steps are to figure out whether the symptoms of his condition have "plateaued," which he said he believes has happened. He also said he may be spending another couple days in the hospital after undergoing two rounds of immunoglobulin to help his immune system respond to the disorder.

"I know there's lot of physical therapy in my future," he said. "Hopefully I'm on the road to recovery. I've heard from a lot of people and know things can get a lot, lot worse so hopefully that is not the case for me."

Rosenbaum also thanked everyone who reached out in support after hearing the news, including people with Guillain-Barré who have offered advice.

Hebert, who has two children with Rosenbaum, also posted about her husband's condition on her Instagram Story, thanking everyone for their outpouring of support and writing that he "is in treatment and doing well."

The diagnosis comes just a week after the couple celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary, which Rosenbaum marked with a sweet Instagram post.
