I’m desperate for an answer.
Yes, I agree its a really long stretch. No one knows for sure how CIDP occurs. I guess I like to torture myself. I think back to when I started feeling the symptoms and what events took place. Many of the medicines I took are quite damaging. The doctors never warned me of the side & adverse effects of some of these drugs. LDN Low Dose Naltrexone can cause anything from stomach cramps to convolutions, depression or deep vein thrombosis. After a few months of therapy I suffered from a pulmonary embolism. (Blood clot in my lung)
Long term Opioids use could change your metabolism, lowers your immune system and could cause anything from weight loss to causing a stroke. Maybe I do too much online research.
