Jack, I don’t think there is any typical course that response to treatment will take for CIDP. My own case is atypical to begin with. Although I was ultimately diagnosed with CIDP, the initial diagnosis was GBS. I am atypical under either diagnosis.

I received nine PE treatments through a Quinton catheter in the groin. At the start I was paralyzed below the neck. I literally could not lift a finger. I think it was after about seven treatments that I started to move one finger.
