CIDP symptoms were mild until the last 4 years. I began to feel tired and my toes went numb about 15 years ago. Thinking back, I had a bad reaction to the Swine Flu immunization given in mass at a local mall back in the 70s. I also had a weird rash similar to Lime Disease on one of my legs in the early 80s. Otherwise, I was mostly healthy except for nagging sinus problems due to allergies.
[QUOTE]My symptoms began in Oct and were still continuing in Dec when I was finally diagnosed.[/QUOTE] This would be an onset of at least 6-8 weeks, which would be unusual for GBS. Do you know the cause of your GBS and can you tell us more? Thank you.
