I’ll also add, that I am a Cellcept taker and not IVIG.  I am so grateful I chose Cellcept over IVIG and it worked. I’d like to taper off of it eventually but after being on it for over 3 years, it isn’t quite the time yet.  I did get COVID 2 weeks ago and tested at home positive on a Sunday.  I went to 3 different places before I was eventually able to get Plaxlovid later that night.  Again, I was being my best advocate and wasn’t going to stop until I secured the antiviral drug.

I had body aches, chills, and more.  Took the antiviral and the next morning all my symptoms were gone and tested COVID negative a few days later.

Stopped the Cellcept for 7 days while i had COVID.  My legs are now a little buzzy but I expect them to improve.  Prior to this episode of COVID, I was feeling pretty “normal” for a bit of time.
