Does anyone here have know about CIDP or Lewis-Sumner Syndrome?

For many years, I’ve had a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.  But I have a new neurologist, who believes it may be something like Lewis-Sumner Syndrome.  It’s a variation of CIDP (the asymmetric variety), and from the little I can find-it seems plausible.  But so do many other conditions (hence the ms diagnosis).  Does anyone here live with either of these disease states?  It’s (as far as I can tell, with the limited info I can find) a chronic form of Guillain-Barre’.
