[QUOTE=angel2ndclass22699]I’m just wondering how many people have had a skin biopsy performed on them since having the cidp dx.
I will be having one done in a few weeks, along with my 12th ncv/emg and a mri of the brain(they won’t find anything up there-so I’m told;) ).[/QUOTE]
Hi Cheryl,
I’m curious about the rationale for the skin biopsy. I just googled and saw that for CIDP some doctors are doing a skin biopsy versus a nerve biopsy to help diagnose CIDP. Is that what is happening with you?
