Your symptoms are fairly common. I too had them, but a few more due to the severity of my GBS/CIDP/MFS complications.

If you start getting headaches, nausea, vomiting, myalgia, low backache, mild grade fever, and flushing following IVIg, you may have experienced Aseptic Meningitis Syndrome (AMS). This is a rare side affect of IVIg and can usually be overcome by lowering the infusion rate. Some people get relief with a little Benadryl (15-25MG) before or during the infusion.
