Reply To: CIDP pain

Sharp pains certainly can be a symptom of active CIDP. There’s no confusing it with normal “aches and pains.” It’s like being sliced with a knife. I took strong pain meds for this when my disease was active, but went off them as soon as possible when I went into recovery. Two years out, I still have constant pain in my feet and occasional slicing pain as well, but I just live with it. I think it’s best to avoid constant reliance on pain meds, if possible.
