I know I have CIDP because my neurologist calls it that. To be more precise, initially there was some question, because I am atypical under either diagnosis. When I asked my neurologist if he had decided it was CIDP, he said “that’s what we are treating you for.” The significance to naming the disorder is that the treatment plan and expectations for the progress will differ between the two. But there is a lot of variation in how these disorders present. What matters is getting the most effective treatment for whatever you have. In my case, things worked out fairly well, even though I am atypical. I don’t care what they call it.
