Yes, with dysautonomia

Yes, my CIDP hit my autonomic system, and hit the phrenic nerve, which controls the diaphragm. My breathing is becoming shallower and shallower, and have been told a ventilator is in my future, as the CIDP progresses. I have a bi-pap to be used through the day or night, whenever I am having trouble breathing. And now they will be deciding if they will be adding oxygen to it, since my O2 sat. is down to 80.
So, if it hits your autonomic system, then there is the good chance it may hit your phrenic nerve, (you can google it to read about it).
