Reply To: Dx GBS but thinking its CIDP

I was originally diagnosed as GBS and changed to CIDP after a few weeks. I don’t think this is unusual. They are similar in most respects, so GBS will usually be the diagnosis until the pattern of symptoms suggests that CIDP is a better diagnosis.

The diagnosis is just a name anyway, not the thing. I am atypical under either diagnosis.
