      I am a brand new member and have been “surfing these forums” in search of answers and hoping that I am diffirent/misdiagnosed having my life back again.Could not agree with one member stating that the more one read, the more confused I am. Sadly or not….seems I am right at home in the CIDP community and am no working to find the solution. Anyhow, will tell my tale later, just wanted to touch base and wish you all the very best (ha ha including myself) and hope to not only find interesting discussions but also contribute my little part. I work in Sudan (Darfur) so it is not easy but I can still manage. Any South Africans out there, will appreciate to know.

      Take care!!

      This is a very confusing disease. I hope all goes well with you. My daughter just returned from Tanzania to help me as I go through a clinical trial for this. She traveled for a year through India, then to South Africa, then a little more in Africa before coming home to Texas.

      I hope you find answers and I hope you find someone from South Africa to connect with – best of everything to you,
