Is it GBS or is it CIDP?

      “…CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis of acute-onset chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) should be considered when a patient thought to have Guillain-Barré syndrome deteriorates again after 8 weeks from onset or when deterioration occurs 3 times or more. Especially when the patient remains able to walk independently and has no cranial nerve dysfunction or electrophysiologic features likely to be compatible with CIDP, maintenance treatment for CIDP should be considered…”

      For the serious amongst you:

      I’ll check out the site. I’m in that “in between” zone.

      I too will check out that site. It is hard to determine at the early stages, but CIDP is a slow degeneration. GBS usually starts to clear after 8 weeks, but it still depends on the individual and the way that you treat your body. I tried to overdo it and found myself sliding backwards. Learned what plenty of rest really means.
