      My brother-in-law has just been diagnosed with CIDP. He has had MS for more than 10 years and now has this to deal with as well. He will be starting IVIG treatments tomorrow. We are praying this will give him some dramatic improvement.

      Thank you both! He had his first IVIG treatment today and it went well. He said there were no effects either good or bad today, although he said his feet felt a bit warmer. His balance has been affected by the CIDP and it would be wonderful if that would improve for him.

      Give it five days if this is the first time he has had IVIg… that’s what they all say that it takes about 5 days to kick in… that was true for me and improvements happened quite dramatically… one day I could not move my face and the next I could sort of smile. 🙂
