Medications and Side Effects

People who take prednisone can experience weight gain and have these other symptoms you describe. What about the option of using plasmapheresis in stead of IVIG? Are you on any other drugs? Has your thyroid been tested and scanned for any potential growths that might be causing this? Have they analyzed stool samples for infections? If all the relevant testing has been done, I’d probably consult with a homeopathic specialist and/or dietician to try to balance my system as much as possible while the healing takes place. A word of caution, though. Anything homeopathically prescribed should be run past the treating doctor/neurologist before ingesting anything else into the equation. Other than suggest buying stock in Charmin, I wish you the best in finding a quick solution!
