Patient Stories


Matt was diagnosed with CIDP in late 2021, when he was only 43 years old, and otherwise perfectly healthy. Though he has many very scary and frustrating symptoms, including numbness in his feet, muscle spasms, cramps, weakness, etc., he continues to put his all into his job every day as a 6th-grade teacher and coach. He continues to inspire them and make learning fun, even though he isn’t feeling his best, and has a frustrating condition (CIDP) that he is dealing with behind the scenes. He is a wonderful and present dad to our very active twin 10-year-old boys. While CIDP continues to challenge and frustrate us, we are tackling it as a team, and I am very proud of him.
