      Has anyone experienced a sudden increase in pain after starting IV steroids?  My mother was diagnosed about 3 months ago with CIDP.  She did not respond to IVIG so now trying steroids.  On the 2nd day of steroid injections her pain became unbearable and will not let up.

      It could just be due to the progression of the condition, not directly due to the steroids.

      there can be nerve pain as nerves are regenerating—is she feeling an increase in strength with the pain.
