Physiotherapy for CIDP

    • February 15, 2017 at 10:20 pm

      Almost ten months passed since i am living with GBS (2 months) and CIDP (8 months). I have taken plasmapharesis and IVIG treatments for the GBS but it was not successful it is changed to CIDP. I have taken Prednsione for 7 months and stopped with tapering due to increase of Blood Sugar level (390). Now i a taking azathioprine 100mg perday. My current symptoms are i feel some weight on my palm, stomach and back. I can stand and walk a few distance with out any support. Now i use a walker but after some distance i feel tired on my leg. Currently i am doing some exercises, but what kind of physiotherapy shall i do to avoid those symptoms i mentioned above and best walk?

      Those of us with broken immune systems that know how to attack “self” and are recovering from the severe trauma CIDP has given us, will experience fatigue quickly when undergoing PT. Stop when you feel tired or exhausted. CIDP doesn’t do well when we push the threshold. Listen to your body!
