Reply To: Your Progression of CIDP
There is a lot of individual variation with CIDP. My case was rapid onset, reaching minimum syrength from initial symptoms in about ten weeks. Since then, I have recovered most of my strength and balance. IvIg didn’t do much for me. I haven’t used it since my initial loading doses. My primary treatment was plasma exchange, followed by steroids (now discontinued) and an immune suppressant (ongoing). My pattern is atypical — yours seems more usual, from what I have read. There is no one treatment plan which is best for all with CIDP.
