could be CIDP?

I have heard of GBS “turning into” CIDP. The symptoms are similar, though it seems that GBS symptoms are more acute; also GBS is of shorter duration.
Anything that lasts more than, I believe 2 months, is often reclassified as CIDP. But that really doesn’t explain what is going on with you, Beethoven. You may have a newly developed case of CIDP, which may have nothing to do with your GBS. In any event, I would get a second opinion. If this has been going on for over three months and you are now noting muscle wastage, it is time to see another expert. Do not wait!

Good luck.
