I remember at one of the semi-annual symposiums a physical therapist described how CIDP affects the muscle “motors”. She said that this meant that not all of a muscle was working. That this meant when we exercise we are not using the whole muscle and thus throwing more work/strain on the part we are using. That we should therefore exercise but take it easy to keep from over working that part of a muscle that is actually working.

I find that I can do a lot of “exercise” that I used to do but not for as long a time. I tire much more quickly than I used to.

Hope my memory is correct and that this helps you.
