question about ivig

December 23, 2007 at 9:55 am

Since my LP didn’t show elev. protein my neuro in hospital waffled on treatment. I could walk with assistance and breathe on my own so no tx was done. I see a new neuro on the 26th for emg / ncv. I guess my question is: is it ever too late for ivig? Here I sit thru the holidays wondering if I need ivig (needed ivig a week ago in the hospital?). Is damage being done by not having the ivig asap? As of yesterday I started have muscle cramps in the right leg…not fun! 🙁 I’ve had no pain (just the opposite: numbness) until yesterday. Today pain in left foot. Normal? Weird?

Thanks for any and all help….you guys are sooo helpful!
