CIDP Support

    • January 5, 2020 at 5:28 pm

      Dear community,

      I haven’t been able to be active in these forums since last November. I was hit by a reckless driver 12/6/19 and am in an Acute Care center recovering.

      I have been a contributor to these forums for almost 8 years and have over 700 posts in my attempt to help others that suffer from GBS/CIDP and its variants.

      Should my contributions to these forums have helped you, your friends, and/or family, please consider helping me.

      The following link will reveal more about who I am and tell you about what happened to me. And, if you generously choose to do so, you can help me.

      I plan to recover and be able to become active again in these forums. I do enjoy helping others on here, but am not able to do so at the moment.

      I wish all of you the best of recoveries.

      Jim, I hope your recovery is going well. I am shocked no one here has replied after a week of your post. I see you are a large contributor and given the rare nature of our disorder, it really helps to hear more voice than not. Best wishes.

      My heart sunk when I read this awful news. I’m so sorry to hear you are dealing with yet another struggle. Being newly diagnosed with CIDP, I have learned so much from all of your knowledge and links. They have been a much needed resource. Thank you.

      I hope you recover soon Jim! I’m happy to see you back on the forum. God Bless you!

      Hi Trev, “brain fog”, as some have referred to it, can be brought on with Demyelinating conditions. It is possible to suffer from a form of Aphasia if the demyelination affects parts of the brain. This can cause a number of different occurrences including memory and cognitive deficiencies to personality changes; this, however, is not a common result of CIDP and the condition is very rare.

      I doubt you have Aphasia, but you can learn more about it here:


      As CIDP symptoms abate, memory related shortcomings typically abate too. Here are some forum discussions about CIDP and memory that may be helpful:
