Thank You. I understand your opinion, but IVIG does not clean the blood. I think you are maybe meaning plasmapheresis, that cleans blood. Ivig are antibodies that block the bad one on auto attacking the nerves. See link. Immuno suppressants like you and others are on, suppresses the entire immune system, making it more susceptible to infection.  Its a trade off, Im willing to try. The IVIG did work for me.Stopped after I got covid.
