Dear BCProblems,

I have never heard of those symptoms with CIDP. I suggest you get yourself to an emergency room. Could be some kind of poison or allergic reaction. I have had CIDP for 14 years and I do not think red lines and red fingers are a symptom. Usually, it starts in the feet, then begins to work it’s way up the body. I have it everywhere to some degree. If the pain is really bad, it could be cellulitis. I had it once in the foot, and that was exactly the symptom. If it is, it needs treatment without delay. Try to get to a health professional quickly.
