Speaking of side effects, I have one other question.  Being recently diagnosed, I’ve only had the one ivig treatment (in December).  I had a reaction during the infusion (chills, shaking, joint pain – particularly my neck, vomiting, slight fever).  From what I was told, this would not prevent future treatments, that I would probably just need to take benadryl and have a slower infusion rate.  It seems that ivig is the preferred treatment for most people and that’s what I’ve been hoping would work for me, even though I had that reaction.   Has anyone heard of this happening?
