Reply To: How long after onset did you begin to actually lose strength, not just weakness?
My neuro also thinks the flu shots caused my CIDP. The hospital where I worked insisted we had to have the shots – I had never had one before. After the second year flu shot I began to have tingling in my lower legs. The tingling continued for three years and then I began to feel like I had a pair of tight sox on. Still no weakness. After getting to the neurologist and being tested and diagnosed as having CIDP, I still had no weakness. It came on very slowly, not like I read in so many of the posts. The first tingling I felt was 16 years ago, but now I definitely have weakness.
