      Kind of explains why AIDP, or acute GBS has such a good prognosis, as usually it is only the myelin sheath destroyed, not the axon itself. Whereas, in CIDP, when nerves are constantly being attacked & then heal (the relapsing/remitting form), or in the progressive form of CIDP whereas there is no improvement, it is usually the axons themselves being destroyed. I guess I accepted the fact long ago that I have a certain amount of axonal damage, wish they could find a way to replace them?

      Just sent them off to my SIL who has MS. I’ve always thot there seemed to be ‘chemical’ processes that were similar, just happening in different places.
      While I’ve been ‘diagnosed’ as having CIDP? I’ve also had notes that indicate AIDP [which to me, is more in line with my own circumstances of onset] and a variety of other agressive polyneuropathies. [What Fun!]

      Good research – thank you! And I’m SURE you ARE doing WELL!….. I am soo happy for you… Blessings etc that it sticks! – homeagain

      [FONT=”Microsoft Sans Serif”]pam, homeagain–

      i guess i often look at research in MS because there is comparatively so much more than for cidp… i acknowledge that they are different diseases, but yes, quite similar and seemingly only in different places. and while different components may exist within the cns vs the peripheral one, i think advances being made in both knowledge as well as treatment for MS is valuable to us… i found the following link especially delicious in terms of being “informative.”

      hang in–
