My first word to you is to get another doctor. Insist on a muscle biopsy and lumbar puncture to start on your way to a diagnosis. My first doctor only prescribed gabapentin – her colleague was more pro-active and got the biopsy and lumbaar puncture. With my classical drop foot, pins and needles and trouble walking with “heavy legs” he came to a quick dx of CIDP. I am on 50g IVIV 5 running days every 2 months for a year to see if any improvement. Just finished my first seriw 2 weeks ago…so far no change. I will continue to monitor this site.
