Like many, IVIG only provided short term benefit for me. As you will see, each case responds differently to the various treatments. I was on prednisone for several years, then IVIG, then plasma exchanges which proved most beneficial for me. My doctor has, over the years used a combination of treatments to keep the progression under control, so your doctor may have to look at this possibility for you should the IVIG not help. Hope you get the right combination
