Reply To: New Diagnosed-IVIG question

I just had my first loading dose of Privigen last week. So far I’ve noticed little difference except a little sensation in my feet and legs, and a great improvement in digestion. I’ve also suffered minimal side effects, mainly a bit of fever.

I’m still on 30mg of Prednisone daily but also noticed my sugar levels are not quite as bad as they were before the IVIG. Could be just a coincidence. I saw major improvements within a couple days of starting the steroids.

I think I need to give the IVIG a bit of time to work. I have to see the neurologist in early January then start my next infusions a coule days after. I expect some changes by then. If not, it may be time to look at other alternatives.
