Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder, which is sometimes called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy, is caused by damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves.
Signs and symptoms of CIDP:
- Abnormal sensations
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of deep tendon reflexes (areflexia)
- Problems breathing
- Sensory changes
- Slurred speech
- Tingling or numbness (beginning in the toes and fingers)
- Trouble using arms or legs
- Uncoordinated movement
- Weakness of the arms and legs
