Reply To: Non-linear recovery (tell me I don't have CIDP)
A lumbar puncture is the usually they way CIDP is confirmed. Tell tale signs of CIDP, are the glove and sock syndrome. Where you have numbness/pain/loss of motor control from your knees and elbows down.
To me, your symptoms seem like CIDP and I’d see a neurologist who has dealt with the disease ASAP and get it confirmed and treatments restarted. Best of luck.
