How can I stop the tingling?

      Hi, all.

      After suffering with tingling, weakness and loss of balance since March, 2018, I was finally diagnosed with CIDP in July. I’m currently receiving IVIG and taking Prednisone. I’m mostly back to normal, except for the fact that the tingling just won’t go away. It’s very uncomfortable doing normal daily activities, such as typing, petting the cat, eating, sitting, walking, etc.

      Does anyone have any suggestions on what to take (or what to do) to reduce the tingling sensations in my hands and–to a lesser degree–my feet?

      For my feet, I take 3600mg of Gabepentin daily. While it doesn’t eliminate the pain, burning, tingling, it reduces it by, say 50 to 60% percent. I can definitely tell when I forget to take it.

      I don’t know if it is supposed to help your hands.

      I know when I was in recovery the first time, it took 6 months for my hands to fully recover.
