What is Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)?
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder -- a condition that targets your body’s nerves. Anyone can get CIDP, but it’s most common in older adults, and more in men than women. As many as 40,000 people in the U.S. may have the condition, but it’s hard to know how many people have it. CIDP isn’t easy to diagnose.
What are the Symptoms of CIDP?
Symptoms aren’t the same for everyone, but you may be tired and have areas of numbness and pain. It can slow your reflexes and make your arms and legs feel weak. You have to have symptoms for at least 8 weeks for CIDP to be considered the cause.
How to Treat CIDP?
Treatment for CIDP may include: Corticosteroids, as these medications bring down inflammation and slow the body's immune system. Most people need treatment. And the sooner you begin it, the better the chance of a complete recovery. Sometimes symptoms go away for a long time but come back later.
