      Hi there! I was just diagnosed with CIDP a week ago. I was hospitalized in December 2021 and was diagnosed with GBS. Since then I have no feeling from the waist down except nerve pain, shocks, and spasms. My right arm and hand are also numb. I can only walk with a Walker. I take gabbapentin 400mg 3x a day and Norco 7.5 3x a day. Along with many vitamins. I am in pain all day every day. I take 1 20 mg Baclofen at night. I am scheduled to see a physiatrist but I am scared and the neurologist makes what I am to expect clear as mud. I saw this forum and hoped I could get some advice and clarification on what to expect. Thanks!
