I am 9 years into a severe case of CIDP & also used to be a high school teacher until I came down with this. Definitely try Neurontin or Lyrica for the pain, I couldn’t live without it. And yes, there are worse things one can get; but I do believe the hardest part of this illness is that it is forever, one cannot truly beat it. As for the sleep & fatigue part, I still haven’t figured that one out. I do know that the sun helps me a lot, so we just bought a condo in Florida to spend winters there.. Kind of an expensive trial, I guess, LOL!
