Gait problems are due to damaged nerves. No treatment for CIDP repairs damaged nerves. If the PE treatments arrest the attacks on the nerves, then they will begin to heal naturally. Nerve healing is slow and may never reach 100%. The progression of my CIDP seems to have been stopped by my PE treatments, but a year later I still had noticeble gait irregularities. Two and one-half years out, most people don’t notice even though I am still not 100% healed.
