Starr, welcome to the group 😀
I have CIDP and my feet are very bad.
I can’t walk long distances either.
I get the same sensations as you do.
I also get shooting pains that nearly drop me to the ground.
I find that overdoing it makes the pain worse!
I found that wearing a running show all day helps.
I also lay on my couch with my legs and feet going up the back of the couch to keep them elevated, seems to help with pain and swelling.
I got myself a small scooter so when I go shopping I can enjoy myself more.
At night I use a warm rice bag to help relax the feet and it also helps with the pain.
As for IVIG I was once on a three month schedule and Dawn pointed out the shelf life of IVIG is about 3 weeks.
I found I was in more and more pain as it got closer to IVIG day.
With Dawns information in hand I approached my doctor and got switched to a monthly schedule.
I get 90gms every month.
For the most part I find I am doing better and not in as much pain.
Hope that helps a little,
more people can give you more ideas.
