There is a lot of variation in CIDP. It’s certainly possible that you have two things going on at once, which would make diagnosis difficult. It’s certainly something to keep in mind. If you have unexplained symptoms, you should have tests to rule out (or not) other causes than the onitial diagnosis. The usual tests for CIDP are the spinal fluid test and nerve conduction tests. In some cases, a nerve biopsy is done to support the diagnosis.
