Reply To: DX-Ployneuritis of Unknown etiology?

I saw another primary. Gave him my symptoms &  evidence on paper of previous Neuropathy diagnoses & was diagnosed with Neuropathy for 3rd time in a month. The prednisone 20 mg x2 daily is a 7 day course & guess what it’s working.I’m running(slight distances again) instead of using a cane , Doing housework, & not losing my balance easily anymore & this is after just 2 days also the dizziness I usually get upon standing is gone . I believe that polyneuritis of unknown etiology is now an autoimmune polyneuropathy(most likely CIDP given my rapid response to the prednisone  & history of symptoms).
