Arthur Gause’s Story

Arthur Gause sought medical treatment after a years-long, insidious onset of symptoms began to worsen greatly in the fall of 2014. After courses of prednisone did not resolve his symptoms, Arthur was eventually able to see a neurologist who diagnosed him with CIDP and began immunoglobulin treatments that have gotten him out of a wheelchair to walking with a cane. He credits much of his recovery to the love and support of his wife, Dee, who is now the Raleigh, N.C., liaison to the GBS-CIDP Foundation International. He advises others with CIDP to keep a meticulous record of paperwork and symptoms, as well as to be your own best advocate by letting others know what you need.
