Not eating…

Back in April of 2002, the first morning I woke up unable to walk at all & had almost totally lost the use of my hands (I would remain this way for 2 1/2 years), I was also unable to eat. Everything, including water tasted like metal. I was threatened at Mayo with an IV for fluids & they tried to get me to drink Boost or Ensure. I lost about 25# in a matter of 6 weeks, then slowly my ability to eat again returned. I believe when I had that taste problem I was in my most acute phase of CIDP, be careful to watch out for more loss of function.
