I have multiple autoimmune syndrome, which now seems to include CIDP. One of the medicines that I take for pain related to my RA is Tramadol. Surprisingly it also cuts the edge off of the leg, and arm pain.

Unfortunately it does nothing for the burning, or clothing discomfort. I agree that the Lyrica is the best for that. I understand the torture this causes, I have had it three years. Hate socks, gloves, and covers over my lower extremities.

I am with the rest of the people here in saying you should try IVIG. They gave me it when they thought I had GBS, and then again the second time before the changed me to CIDP. It gave me a bit of a headache, but the results were amazing.

Hand in there.
