      CIDP can affect the diaphragm that works the lungs. I have times out of the blue I feel I can’t get enough air.  It’s me having difficulty getting a full deep breathe.  I feel it more in the summer when my body is overly tired and/or from the heat. There are many of us who have this unpleasant and sometimes scarey CIDP symptom.

      From Parry and Steinberg:

      “… weakness of the breathing muscles is occasionally encountered, although in contrast to GBS, mechanical ventilation is almost never necessary.”
