Infusing IVIg too fast causes Aseptic Meningitis often leading to the reactions you reported your husband experiencing. Slow down the infusion rate and see if that solves his problem.

Please see the following publications for more information on Aseptic Meningitis:

According to many posts on the NeuroTalk forums, Plasmapheresis is the treatment of choice for those where IVIg triggers Aseptic Meningitis. SCIg is the other treatment of choice. Perhaps you should consider getting a second opinion from a CIDP specialist?

Your husband’s headaches, etc. may be better controlled if the CIDP is treated more directly without triggering Aseptic Meningitis.
