Reply To: Your Progression of CIDP

P Grandma, objective tests of strength are the best indication of whether the demyelenation is progressing. A neurologist or physical therapist can tell just by pushing against your attempts to resist. To test yourself, you need weights or Therabands. A persistent loss of strength is the indication. Temporary weakness just from being tired is not the same thing. I don’t know how extreme cold figures in. Try to stay warm and do some regular exercizes and keep track of what you can or cannot do. If there is persistent loss of strength, you need to see your neurologist.
