I have been recently diagnosed with CIDP. I have refused flu shots for the past 10 years because when I would get them I would get sick from the shot then violently ill from the flu later on. I would advise anyone who gets very ill from flu shots be checked by a neurologist for CIDP, indications of neural slowing can be found with an EMG.
