Solu Medrol is methylprednisone, a corticosteroid. This is a standard treatment for CIDP, and is given in conjuction with other treatments, but it is usually tapered down over a period of a year or so. Headaches are a known adverse reaction. I suggest you ask your doctor about the long-term plan — whether the dosage will be tapered down and whether you will transition to another drug.
