Lori… my mother had rheumatoid arthritis. (Same as ms.Judy). My neurologist
advanced the theory that even though I’ve tested negative for RA, and both
CIDP & RA are auto-immune, he wouldn’t be surprised if some of my CIDP is RA related. My symptoms sound somewhat like RA without joint deformity.
You’re guess is as good as mine ? Thought I’d throw my hat in the ring on this. Jeff (JJM).
