Lyme and CIDP

August 12, 2009 at 6:32 pm

Hi Christy,

I know that Lyme disease can cause neurological problems similar to those seen in CIDP. It is apparently one of the things that makes the diagnosis of CIDP sometimes challenging.

And it seems like I might have read somewhere of the hypothesis of a Lyme infection actually triggering CIDP, but don`t quote me on that.

I`d rather just have Lyme disease myself, as it seems to be a lot more treatable! But really, you don`t ever want to come down with either…

good luck,
