Reply To: CIDP pregnancy stories please

I’m 17 going on 18 and I was 16 when I got pregnant. While I was pregnant my legs started giving out. I had sciatic pain in top of it and my ob told me it was just sciatica nerve damage. By the time I had my son(In May) I could not walk. At all. I had to do physical therapy for months and was still not able to run. No one knew what I had. By November I still was not back to my normal self but then I had double vision and blurry vision. We went to the I doctor and they did 2 hours of testing before telling me that it was all neurological. So we went to my regular doctor and discovered I had drop foot and no reflexes. I had blood tests and an emg. That is what lead us down the path of cidp. I spent a week in a hospital, getting ivig, and a week in a rehab. Now I have ivig every four weeks. I’ve finally got a little better but still cannot keep my balance or stand hours on in or run. Will symptoms get worse if I want kids in the future?
