It is too early. It can take awhile for the optimal treatment to be arrived at, and no treatment will give immediate results anyway. On top of that, there is a lot of individual variation with CIDP, both in its presentation and in the response to various treatments.

As for weakness, that can’t easily be evaluated on a daily basis. What you have to look out for is persistant weakening, not a temporary perceivd weakening which is nothing more than exhaustion from overwork.
