Reply To: Shortness of breath I mo after IVIG

I hope that you were able to figure this out. I haven’t heard of IVIG causing breathing problems, but CIDP/GBS can. For me, my breathing is sometimes affected, but more of a sensation of lack of breath vs. actual lack of breath (pulsox is usually in normal range). I would call your neuro of there is no response to email. Do you have any future IVIG treatments scheduled after the 5-day loading dose? If you’re having trouble breathing and neuro (or PCP) won’t respond, I’d go to ER.
