Reply To: Treatments for inflammation, what works for you?

jk, thanks for the reply. My cidp started in December of last year. It started with extreme pain in the thigh muscles followed by nerve activity and numbness. Had an early diagnosis and started Ivig treatments every 2 weeks for 7 months now. I feel pretty good, strength and balance have remained strong but will have inflammation on occasion that can be painful. Sometimes comes and goes quickly, other times can hang around for an hour or 2. Assumed this was common for cidp sufferres since it is chronic inflammation but others say they have no inflammation as a symptom. Mine is mainly in the top thigh muscles and occasionally in the forearm muscles. Was just wondering what others may have had success with to help the pain. I am completely aware that my body is using inflammation to protect me but it goes overboard with this condition for me. Currently a flood victim from Hurricance Harvey in Houston ☹️
