Well, I have a different outlook on the cause and effect of the inflammation aspect of CIDP.

The do-dads (Chronically) attack (Inflammatory) the myelin (Demyelinating) sheath of one or more peripheral nerves (Polyneuropathy), eventually affecting proper muscle function. Because the muscles lose the ability to contract properly, they don’t. Left alone long enough the muscles atrophy. It’s not a question of muscle tissue becoming inflamed.

If you were experiencing fasiculations or muscle cramps that would be expected.

Oh, well, everybody’s disease is different.
