Getting a diagnosis is sometimes difficult. Getting treatment can be tougher. I wish I had early intervention. My CSF was only elevated 10% when I finally got diagnosed. But prior to diagnosis my symptoms were less than convincing. I was told that I needed to stop stresses in my life and stop wasting my money on Drs. Several years later my neuropathy became more active. Five years after diagnosis I was put on disability.

The story need not be sad however. You have an opportunity for very early intervention with IVIG. The IVIG treatment may slow or arrest progression in early cases. Not everyone becomes disabled, but why wait and see?

IVIG is made from many donations of human blood. It is a natural product, spun down, cleaned, and prepared. I don’t think there is much chance of a reaction, and it should only help. Ask your Doc about any concerns. I would rather be proactive than just wait and see.

By happy and look for the best in both your treatment and in life. That always helps.

Take care
