How were you diagnosed

Hi there,

It sounds like you have a similar variant to my husband. His diagnosis was not CIDP but post viral small fibre neuropathy. The main symptoms are nerve pain in the arms, legs and especially feet and some cranial involvement. He has some weakness but the EMG and nerve conduction tests are always negative.

What symptoms led to the diagnosis of CIDP? In Canada they do not call it CIDP unnless there is large fibre motor nerve involvemnet. Consequetly there is no IVIG treatment provided….
