Reply To: questions from recently diagnosed CIDP
I appreciate hearing the positive experiences and results others have had; it does provide hope for better days ahead. I’m hopeful with my appointment in a few days and possibly some movement toward working on the insurance problem that these things will get me started in a better direction. I feel at my best in the afternoons, which I’ve suspected could be due to the amount of prednisone in my system, but I don’t know. Nevertheless, I can curl the 1 lb. weight this afternoon (for 3-4 reps), but could not during the morning hours – same thing yesterday. I’m also using a cane to help with balance. I can still move, but the effort and energy doesn’t match up with these simple activities. I guess I’m still trying to evaluate everything, looking for patterns, etc. as I try to figure this thing out. Thanks again for taking time to respond and offer information and encouragement.
