Reply To: IVIG reaction, allergy?

yes, we get that reaction all of the time. We don’t even bother w/premeds because they don’t help. Used to use Zofran for nausea, but felt it increased headache? A member named Gabrielle used solumedrol after treatment. Some chemo patients follow up w/ methotrexate to help w/reactions. Not to throw a wrench in things, just an idea, have you been tested for Charcot Marie tooth? Do the other treatments you were using work? CMT shows the same way on a ncv/emg. It is a slower rate of debilitation and somewhat mimics cidp in weakness. What other meds did you take? CMT can be confirmed through a specialized blood test through Athena labs, it takes a while to get back. Keep us posted.
