No question is a dumb question…

Dear Shirley,

Most GP’s, emergency doctors, and some neurologist know little or nothing about GBS or treatments available. As Cheryl suggested above, you need to see a neurologist familiar with GBS/CIDP and have an updated EMG/NCV which checks for demyelination and denervation. If your immune system is still producing autoantibodies attacking your myelin sheath, then you probably have CIDP, and IVIG treatments would be a great benefit to you.

Warmest regards.
