      Do you have mostly sensory (feeling) troubles in your hands or feet and most of your major muscle groups are OK or only slightly weak?

      Holy Smokes,

      Once again, I was looking for something else when I read this. It reminded me of a recent question ‘How long to diagnose your CIDP?’

      How about forever?

      “[I]Sensory CIDP may present as cryptogenic sensory polyneuropathy with normal or axonal electrophysiologic features. Sural nerve biopsy should be considered in patients with progressive, predominantly large fiber sensory neuropathy of otherwise unknown etiology, as they may have sensory CIDP that responds to therapy[/I]”
