My journey with CIDP begin in 2006 when I returned home from a trip in South America. Two months after returning, I began walking a little strange and noticed I was getting weaker and more tired. I soon saw a neurologist, which began the 10-month diagnosis of CIDP. I did all the routine tests and nothing seemed to tell the neurologist what was wrong. It was not until the end of 2007, when I was diagnosed based off the lumbar puncture results that showed routine symptoms of CIDP.
