CIDP and the Covid Vaccine

Thanks for your questions and reply. I have had increasing leg numbness and hand numbness for over two years. Various EMGs have not show any nerve damage, However, the numbness increases. I was never definitely diagnosed with CIPD or any other problem like vasculitis or ALS,MS, etc. The numbness has increased much more since the first shot (March 14). Here in Canada they delayed the second shot. I was due July 4 but have postponed because I am concerned the vaccine might have caused the numbness to get worse (not cause the numbness but make it get more). I am scheduled for another EMG July 16. As I said, I do not see the vaccine as causing the numbness as it was long before i got the first shot. I am concerned that the second shot could kick in something more serious like acute CIDP or GBS. That you for moderating. Good to have someone to listen.

@francescazama you are most welcome. Has anyone ever mentioned neuropathy as a possible condition?
