Reply To: What Do You Think Caused Your Cidp/gbs?

I first noticed my CIDP symptoms a year ago. We had mold in our apartment, leading to three walls and all of our flooring needing to be replaced. December 2015, they opened the walls and exposed my roommate and I to the horrors within. They left it open for weeks and just let the mold spores and whatever circulate. Fortunately, my roommate has none of these symptoms. It took 8 months for me to get a diagnosis, another 2 months for someone to agree to my IVIg treatment, and I actually saw some improvement. I did a course of IVIG, once a week for 8 weeks. However, now it’s bee a month since my last treatment and my symptoms are coming back worse than before. I have another 3 weeks before my next neurologist appointment, which sucks, hopefully I will still be able to walk by then. As for stress, I’m also a 4th year doctoral student. This has slowed me down, but hasn’t stopped me yet.
