Important clue???

Okay, I did some research on the Miller-Fisher variant and found out that a certain bacteria called C. jejuni has been considered an “associated organism” with the disease. A little less than a month before I began noting some small changes in my vision, I got food poisoning from a restaurant in town. The problem is, however: Miller-Fisher is a GBS variant — does that also apply to CIDP? I’ve heard the variant associated more with GBS than a long term version of the disease, though it’s certainly possible they overlooked mentioning that it can lead to either the acute or chronic form of it. I’m just thinking my symptoms should have come on a lot faster, when in reality, that whole food poisoning incident was a year and a half ago. I don’t know. Any thoughts?
