Reply To: Just had loading dose of IVIG and I feel a little worse
It is too early. It can take awhile for the optimal treatment to be arrived at, and no treatment will give immediate results anyway. On top of that, there is a lot of individual variation with CIDP, both in its presentation and in the response to various treatments.
As for weakness, that can’t easily be evaluated on a daily basis. What you have to look out for is persistant weakening, not a temporary perceivd weakening which is nothing more than exhaustion from overwork.
