Crystal’s CIDP Story

Crystal's CIDP Story

My name is Crystal and I have CIDP. My journey with CIDP started a year before I was diagnosed with memory loss and severe fatigued. At the time, I was working a job that required a lot of energy and I was finding myself really struggling with my everyday tasks. I chalked it up to my age. The symptoms proceeded to continue as tingles in my top lip, which led to my entire face, hands, and legs started to present itself. Within three months, I was hospitalized and diagnosed with CIDP.
