Diagnostic testing for CIDP?

Are there tests that can definitively diagnose CIDP?
I keep going in cycles, and being dosed with predi-pace.  I know that prednisone is not a good thing to be taking all of the time.  I don't know what to do.  Can anyone give me some help?  I know there are other treatment options, but without some proof that I am in fact dealing with CIDP, other treatments are not available to me.
Help??

I found everything I need to know when I did some research on this site.  I'm sorry I didn't look there first.  Now all I need is neurologist who will work with me on a treatment plan.  If I can hold out without the prednisone, am I better off?  Is the treatmemt worse than the disease?
