I received PE early on and it did nothing for me. I had a mini relapse several months after starting to recover due to an infection I contracted whilst at the nursing home and received a round of IVIG with an aggressive antibiotic regimen through IV. I showed signs of improvement quickly thereafter so I don’t know which worked. In any case, I’m due for another round of IVIG treatment next week, but also talked to my doctor about considering PE again. I did get another infection recently, but didn’t relapse this time so maybe the IVIG did help after all. Thanks for your input, Jim.
