Reply To: CIDP caused by Remicade

does seem like a rare coincidence, I agree
.But… I have seen other posts on here though where people have wondered if they tend to get more than one auto immune disorder?? On the good note–possibly the treatment for your cidp may help your arthritus. I am going to be starting rituxin in the next few weeks and was told it is currently being used successfully for hard to treat rheumotoid arthritus as well as cidp.
It would be good to follow up on the remicade, just to see how many others may have cidp from it. I don’t think even the Drs know how common some of the “rare” side effects end up being until people start complaining.
