Stills Disease and CIDP

February 2, 2011 at 11:57 am

From what I know the low dose of prednesone you are on along with the mtx probably wouldn’t mask the symptoms so much, but the RA and CIDP have similar ” aches and pains and weaknesses” that I have found. The biopsy for me came back negative but My neurologist had already dx me. BC wanted the biopsy before they would pay for the IVIg. It was the nerve conduction studies and blood work that gave me my diagnosis. Good luck to you at JH. Let me know what they find out for treating both. Right now I am looking at the stem cell therapy in Chicago.
