New Member - Sister of Brother who has CIDP

Thank you so much for your support. We are still trying to figure out what causes this disease. We have not had anything like this in our family. My parents lived well into their 90s. And here my brother just turned 65 and this happens.
He is being treated by neurologists at USF medical center. He is taking gabopenten and bacolofen and having ivig treatments every 6 weeks. He has recovered some hand dexterity but is still weak in his legs.
He becomes depressed and I try to cheer him up because I feel a positive outlook and faith in God will help him to recover.

Any suggestions you care to share will be most helpful.

I would suggest getting him here online as well as yourself, that way he can ask about things as he thinks of them and he can then see the support and knowledge firsthand
