Need a neuro MD in Asheville NC/Greenville SC expert in CIDP

    • March 27, 2018 at 12:13 pm

      Hello, I am new to the forum. Was diagnosed with CIPD in 2009, most likely triggered by Lyme disease and have had no treatment for CIDP as of yet. I have had progressive muscle atrophy and weakness since, moved near Asheville NC and need help with finding a neurologist in the area to treat me locally.

      Thank you for any assistance.

      Recommend you fill out the Chapter/Liaison help request form. Here-

      Maybe they can help you. Otherwise, I would, first of all, find a neurologist you’re willing to travel to and then find if they accept your insurance. Generally speaking, CIDP, by it’s nature usually requires treatment.

      Muscle atrophy and weakness will probably not heal themselves, nor will truly atrophied, long term damaged, muscle fibre and nerve pathways recover much, if at all.

      Time is your enemy.
