Reply To: IVIG Shortage

Thanks so much for your input David.
Starting PT in a few weeks, I would have started it weeks ago, but waiting a time with patience for my turn.
In the meantime, I do have a recumbent exercise bike, which I’ve been dabbling with. My symptoms are primarily leg weakness, foot drop, numb feeling in toes when I’m on my feet for a while and pain in my legs. Still walking, but not far, it hurts. I’m finding that days after I peddle the exercise bike, pain increases. Neuro said movement is better than not, so I’m increasing my time on the bike incrementally, despite increased pain. Up to 15 minutes a day now.
Hoping to make a full court press, whatever treatment I can get, preferably IVIG I think and physio-therapy and diet, and whatever else I can do to improve my overall health. Also awaiting appointment with dietician to see what, if any, diet is best for my situation.
Thanks again, Micah
