Reply To: New here – possible CIPD?

After some more reading it seems that the pure sensory version of CIPD will always show long fibre damage resulting in some degree of loss of joint position sense and vibration sense. In severe cases this leads to sensory ataxia and sensory ataxic gait (difficulty walking because you can’t feel where your feet are).

This might be how they can distinguish from small fibre neuropathy where the damage is in the small fibers.
