I am thinking MarkEns has the key to the number there

GBS-acute-1/100000 new cases per given year- so to me that means like there are probably more people lets say in the US who have or had GBS than cidp
although the 1/100000 for Cidp is at any one given time.
I am not sure if I have it right, it is beginning to make sense to me.

So far I have found 2 GBS’ers, one in my neighborhood by talking, the other
an employee of the company I work for. he is in Springfield IL.

I found no CIDP so far unless through the website.
Somehow my gut feel was that GBS occured more frequent. Many appear to recover. Are you still considered to have GBS if you 100% recover? Thought it was a once and done affliction and that if it happens again they call it CIDP. The CIDP patients always have the disease. Is this fairly accurate?
