MMN is why?

So On this Thread which may have some significance to some of you who read. I share the fact of how ANY anti inflammatory drug I have takes Has:

Relieved Pain and caused weakness. These drugs include Asprin, Aleve, Ibprophen, Daypro, Eppidural. The more I take, the less Pain I have but weakness has increased.

I can’t believe the Dr. didn’t put 2 and 2 together when I told him the eppidural I had 18 months ago caused foot drop. I have been beating myself
up with alot of oral drugs that have just made it worse and hidden the problem.

The Fact for me is: Not Just Prednisone, but any anti inflammatory is like the same thing, just of different delivery and potency.
Question your diagnosis if you have had this or similar happen to you.

MMN responds well to IVIG, and a few other drugs but not Prednisone or Plasmapheresis. The front line treatment options are the same but after that
it gets very different on how combination are made and your elegibility for certain drugs I would imagine.
