      My Neuro is off and on about my having CIDP. Can a remission change the way and EMG or Spinal Tap gives results. I have had the EMG with slight variations and am scheduled for a spinal tap. The last 10 days have been good and many of my symptoms have lessened, but this has happened before and they seem to come back stronger.

      It is not unusual for there to be uncertainty about the diagnose of CIDP. The spinal fluid test can help identify CIDP, but the results of this test can vary, as with other tests. There is no cut-and-dried method to make an accurate diagnosis. The neurologist arrives at a diagnosis after looking at everything.
