my experience with IVIG

[COLOR=”Red”][SIZE=”3″]I have had IVIG for 2 years for CIDP. It helped immediately — the next day I felt better. My doctor says it is different with everyone with how your body will respond. Thankfully it stopped my CIDP from progressing further . I hope it remains this way. However, I have to have my dose 3 weekends per month to keep my symptoms from spreading. My symptoms were pain and numbness in my feet and lower legs. Stiffness in my legs, and balance issues. I was close to using a cane and eventually a wheelchair. We all have different experiences. Thank goodness I found a doctor to diagnose and treat it aggressively. I hope your experience will be a good one with your treatment.
