Thank you GH and Jim-LA for your posts. Unfortunately I’m from Melbourne, Australia and we don’t have access to those centres of excellence. The neurologist has discussed the possibility of undertaking IVIG treatment, but to access it here, certain criteria has to be met before treatment can be given, and I apparently have so far not met enough of that criteria. I’m not sure if the same applies elsewhere, but it does here. To that end he has scheduled another nerve conduction test. But I agree with you, that CIDP is a consideration. I know how I feel, and how it sits with what I have read about CIDP. I think you’re right. It’s time for second opinion.
