I have it. It shows up as numbness and tingling in my face and a strange sensation when I twist my head. Sometimes that leads to dizziness.

cranial nerve involvement?

Joe, the numbness in your face/neck may be the result of cranial nerve involvement. Some cases of CIDP have this added “attraction.” I don’t know much about it…it may even be a classified as a subtype of CIDP. You might want to start a thread soliciting input from people who have had numbness in face and neck. It is not a symptom of the garden variety of CIDP.

Good luck!
