As main symptom, muscular strength becomes easy to be tired of becoming weak and becomes hard to move eyes and mouth.

CIDP (chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuritis)

It is symmetric to body that peripheral nerve (exercise, sense, autonomic nerve) is attacked and is disease to bring motor deficit, sensory disturbance.
