Welcome, Melody and hubby

I, too, had mono in 74. Diagnosed with GBS in Oct. 2004. When I came in with the early symptoms I was first checked out for MS since my sister was diagnosed with MS many years before. We’ve discussed it before in this forum that genetic tendencies seem to be a connector for some of these autoimmune diseases.
Brandy had it right, so many of the Dr.s have never seen GBS/CIDP. They would be better off to send the patient on then to refuse to admit they don’t know enough about it.
Welcome aboard…we hope we will continue to hear from you.
Hope your husband finds relief with the IVIG.
