Reply To: Newbie here: CIDP and Covid-19 question

May 23, 2022 at 2:09 am

I was first diagnosed (via nerve biopsy) with CIDP about 30 years ago. When I contracted COVID in Dec of 2020, the only thing that happened (except for a positive pcr test, of course), was that I lost my sense of smell. Not even my sense of taste ever went away.

I would be surprised to find anything other than anecdotal correlation between the COVID-19 virus and autoimmune CIDP.
