Reply To: Anyone with similar symptoms?
Don’t get me started on the guitar thing. I finally figured I’d have the change to pick mine up and learn to play. My fingers couldn’t even hit the frets! It’s very frustrating.
I haven’t worked in about 7 months now (was only just diagnosed as CIDP in July, right as my FMLA ran out). I’ve been waiting to see how the IVIG goes before I give up completely and go on disability but I think it’s inevitable given that constant infusions required. My old boss did call about a month ago to see if I wanted my job back after the new guy didn’t work out but I just can’t do it in this condition.
I did a *lot* of work around the house when I started the Prednisone. It made me so restless I just couldn’t sit still. As the dosage was reduced, so went my energy. Now I find myself napping during the day.
