I was initially classified as GBS. I suppose the diagnosis was changed to CIDP because the progression was too slow. GBS, by definition, reaches its maximum in six weeks or less, typically in less than four weeks. Also, I did not have respiratory impairment, which is typical of severe GBS cases.

A month was too long to wait after deciding to switch from IvIg to PE. It was about a week for me. Better late than never, though. I wish you a good recovery.
