      My name is Sarah. I live in NJ,US. My son is the 9 and got diagnosedwith CIDP. What is your story He got his first dose of IVIG and we are still waiting to see if he walks better. Please let’s get in touch. So scared and confused. He was fine in Feb and in March everything went downhill.

      I have CIDP, but I am 66 years old. There have been some contributors here with children who have CIDP, but I haven’t seen their posts in awhile. I hope they are still following this site and respond.

      So sorry to hear about your son, I do understand. On a good note, the fact that your son relapsed after IVIG is proof that it does work for him. That is half the battle, not everyone responds and some people get the wrong diagnosis, so you are ahead of the game. Now you have to find a schedule and dosage amount that works for your son. If possible, could we communicate via email or phone? I would love to give you any info we have so that you don’t have to go through the mistakes that we did. I will check back later today.
