Reply To: CIDP cause – surgery & implants

April 5, 2020 at 11:03 am

I have never had any kind of implant surgery.
Ive never nailed down the cause of my CIDP. My suspicions are either the Lyme I contracted, the over use of antibiotics to treat the Lyme, or very possibly the one and only flu shot I’ve ever gotten, or the combination of all.
Everyone’s CIDP story is different. The end result is a crippling disease we have to combat. The cause is anything that triggers your immune system to go into overdrive mode and attack your body.
Early on in my diagnosis I lost a lot of sleep picking my brain trying to find the answers to the cause of my CIDP, it’s hard not to think about it when you’re out of work with nothing to do but think.
Try to focus on getting your self well. You will get a lot of support and information here. I know it’s hard to, but stay positive and focus on getting yourself better. 👍
