It is possible to recover from CIDP, but in the meantime, you need treatment and the earlier the better. A week and a half is a long time to wait if you are deteriorating daily. You may need someone to help you get around until you are hospitalized, if it comes to that.

I was in a wheelchair before I could get in to see a neurologist. He put me in hospital the same day. Eventually, I was completely paralyzed below the neck. Today I am 95% recovered and walk without assistive devices. Try to stay positive!
