      well they were normal indicating that peripheral involvement at least in small nerve fiber has never occured.
      ruled out so far
      multiple sclerosis
      lupus and other connective tissue disorders-at least in the past now test are coming up mildly possitive

      tranverse myelitis and myosthenia gravis still possibilities but they would have to occur together to cover all my symptoms
      possibilities still out there are


      any suggestions?

      Hi Tara,
      I have a ? for u. If your skin biopsy is normal does that automatically rule out CIDP? I am scheduled for a skin biopsy (my 1st) in 2 weeks. I had not made that connection.

      I have an appointment with Dr. Sahegian in March. I wish it could be sooner. Any advice?

      My doctor here emailed me that I have 3 sets of diagnostic criteria: Common Variable Immune Deficiency which led me to have Ongoing Connective Tissue Disease which led me to CIDP. Thus I have a high Sed Rate, high CRP and high Interluken 1. Does that make any sense???????????
