I hope IVIg works for you. IVIg attempts to stop your autoimmune system from producing more antibodies (‘T’ cells) that can attack “self”. It won’t do anything for the ‘T’ cells already released into your body. Depending on the volume already in your body, positive results could come fairly soon or take some time, if it works at all for you.
IVIg alone does not always work for everyone, it didn’t help me a bit and I got worse while on it. If there is no improvement in a week or two you should try another treatment like Plasma Exchange or Corticosteroids.
