Hi Sue,

As in my case and over the time I was doing PT there was light cidp activity
with back and forth remissions. By doing PT with light CIDP activity, you can increase strength and keep nerve channels open. I did it. When I took it easy a decline would occur. SO there you go. doing PT and daily exercise in my book slows down the damage. At least it did in my case.

I at one point intentionally quit any form of PT or exercise so the Doctors would see my degredation and it came on just like I thought it would. they game me steroid that accelerated my decline. now I had two IVIG’s and I am
hoppin and jumpin.

Sue be careful with any twisting while holding weight. try to rotate your whole body. with neuromuscular interference in the abs and lower back muscles, you are particularly prone to a spinal injury or herniation.

I dont have a definitive answer, but can relay that I recently broke my arm from a fall — probably caused by my weak legs.
