"Many people know that cancer can cause profound tiredness, but they may not realize that fatigue can persist in some survivors for years. 'We're not entirely sure, but it may be due to unchecked inflammation in the body' says Dr. Patricia Ganz, a professor at UCLA School of Medicine.

"Treatment could possibly push the immune system into overdrive, and in certain patients the resulting inflammation could increase fatigue 'as if the body were constantly fighting off a bad flu'."

And that immune system response could manifest in many ways, among them, of course, CIDP.
