It is probably just as important to rule out certain diseases as it is to rule in what you do have.

Please review the “Related disorders” paragraph of this report (Another good article by Dr. Lewis.) from the National Organization for Rare Disorders. These and other genetic disorders need to be ruled out if your doctor deems it necessary.

Some forms of CIDP may be termed Relasping-Remitting. That is, they follow a pattern of getting better and then getting worse. You can find this quote from the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center: “For most people with CIDP the condition is slowly progressive, but about one-third of people experience a relapsing-remitting course (relapses of symptoms with partial or complete recovery in between).”
