Hi there. My daughter was diagnosed with CIDP at 4 years old. I totally understand your concerns & frustrations. Waiting for dr appts when something strange is happening to your child is maddening.

The tests I would recommend are: MRI with and without contrast of the brain, spine & neck, EMG of BOTH arms & legs, spinal tap to check protein levels, and a CBC.

Does your son complain of fatigue or is it weakness & neuropathy?
