Dental work and CIDP/IVIg

November 28, 2008 at 11:13 pm

I am getting ready for major dental work over the next 6 months. So, I will let everyone know. I have been getting IVIg infusions a year now. In addition to that I’m on neurontin, elavil, and fentanyl patches for the severe neuropathic pain that I have. The fentanyl had a serious side effect which was serious tooth decay. Nearly every tooth in my mouth needs some type of dental work. How amazing this disease can be. And NO one yet that I’ve talked to over the last year has ever heard of CIDP or Peripheral Neuropathy.
