Reply To: Does CIDP cause urinary and fecal incontinence

Hi Michael,

welcome to the club. I am going on 3 years with my CIDP diagnosis. The good news is the IVIG might help you quite a bit, But I gradually had issue with both #1 and #2. Went to a urologist who prescribed a bladder relaxing drug that does not seem to be helping. Like Brian, my need to go is pretty strong at times and quite often and I feel that my nerves in those areas are not as strong as they should be. I get IVIG infusions once a month and take Lyrica (Pregablin is the generic) for the nerves and that works pretty well. I am 63 and still working full time and trying to exercise as much as possible. Plus I realized diet has a big impact. Good luck on your journey with CIPD. This site helped understand the condition when I was first diagnosed.
