Have you tried Gabapentin (Neurontin) or Pregabalin (Lyrica) for your pain? Others on this forum have said Lyrica worked better than Neurontin for their GBS/CIDP. Some have reported relief using Amitriptyline (Elavil). Epidural injections or peripheral nerve blocks may be needed in some cases to help relieve sever pain. If you can, research a pain center that has experience treating pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. See this link for some pain center ideas at a “GBS-CIDP center of excellence”:
