Environmental Factor ?!?
I am in the DFW area.
September 7, 2007 I had a colonoscopy. The next week I had extreme muscle fatigue. I could not figure out why. Then the loss of muscle strength started and progressed. After seeing a GP and two neurologist and many tests, I was diagnosed with CIDP March 24, 2008. Of course there is no proof, but there is no doubt in my mind that something happened during the colonoscopy that caused my inflammation. It has been suggested that maybe their equipment had not been cleaned appropriately.
I wonder how many people with CIDP have had a minor seemingly innocuous medical procedure that could have resulted in inflammation.
