Reply To: Newly diagnosed
I was diagnosed with CIDP in April of 2010. My neurologist immediately started me on an aggressive IVIg regimen, which I followed for the next 20 months. My last IVIg infusion was on January 9th of this year. I have remained stable off of the IVIg, and have full function. I take 450mg of Lyrica daily which is very helpful in controlling my pain. Please remain optimistic. Many people with CIDP improve, and many lead full lives.
