Axonal damage is not unusual for both GBS and CIDP. It takes much longer to heal than demyelanation, but improvement is possible. Recovery is not necessarily 100%, although it can be. Time will tell. I am still improving very slowly more than one year out of the hospital. My attitude has always been to do the best I can with the hand I was dealt.

I, also, worked at a keyboard for long hours, and used to have serious back pain. Then I bought a good, executive-style chair with a high back and adjustable height and stiffness. It made a huge difference.
