Just to clarify, “idiopathic” means only that the cause is unknown, it does not mean that a specific, correct diagnosis cannot be made. GBS and CIDP are usually idiopathic. My diagnosis was initially GBS, then it was changed to CIDP. I have no idea what caused it, but it was nevertheless successfully treated.
