CIDP, multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis are names for groups of symptoms. Those names don’t actually mean anything. Those symptoms are caused by infections. In your situation I would say that as your hormones dropped naturally with age it lowered your immune system function which could then no longer hold whatever dormant infection is behind your symptoms in check.
And you can’t spread a group of symptoms, you’re right about that. But you can spread the infection that causes those symptoms. The fact that my mother and stepfather are both displaying identical symptoms to me after I had a contagious blister of a viral infection on my finger is way too much of a coincidence . If you do some research you’ll see that viruses in the herpes family are implicated as the cause or trigger in a number of autoimmune and neurological/motor function diseases.
