Solu Medrol helped me

Hi State Trooper, I want you to know that it did help me but I was on a higher dose and for a longer period of time. I developed blood clots from IvIg, but before that, I could definately feel the difference. I was then switched to CellCept, Cymbalta, and infusions (at home) of SoluMedrol. Words of warning: Your CIDP seems to be very active right now and needs AGGRESIVE treatment. Maybe I am trying to scare you- Or better yet- inform you. I did not receive the help I needed and eventually became parylized up to my chest. I have permanent damage to my ankles and feet. I was wheelchir bound for almost two years. I will wear braces on my legs for the rest of my life. I just recently started to walk a few steps with assistance. You are too young to let this happen- Make sure you choose a top notch Neuro and hospital for your care. I finally went to Mayo Clinic, but it was too late. Most hospitals, nurses, and doctors don’t even know how to treat this condition. They don’t even know what it is. Be AGRESSIVE!!!
