I think my steroid infusions are aggravating my cramping (Solu-Medrol every two weeks). After treatment with IVIG, cramps in my calves,back, hands, neck, and throat increase. I try to stay well hydrated before, during and after treatment, and I think it helps. Yesterday, during infusion, my hands, neck, and throat began cramping. It’s very frustrating and a little scary, especially when I’m talking (or singing in the shower – go ahead…laugh) and my throat locks up and I have no way to stop it…I can only gurgle through it, stretch my neck by pulling my head back, and pray it goes away.

Just so you know, my reflection thinks I have a great singing voice.
