Possibly CIDP?

With the slower onset of symptoms have they considered the possibility of CIDP? If your lumbar punctures shows an elevation of protein, it could be either, but an EMG or NCS should be able to differentiate between the two. Some neuros may want a sural nerve biopsy just to be sure, it would show if there is an “onion bulb” type of demylenation going on.
