I think the meloxicam helps, how much is hard to say. As you know, some days for some reason are just better/worse than others. I believe stress plays a large role in my joint pain and headaches. Unfortunately, being a trial lawyer, I am in one of the most stressful jobs on the planet, and I really believe the constant stress I have been under for a number of years triggered the onset of my CIDP.

Dawn Kevies Mom, your point about inflammation on the spine causing headaches is a fascinating one. I always thought the headaches were likely caused by muscle tension due to stress, but inflammation could very well be the culprit, as it is in so many health issues and diseases, including CIDP.
