This week has been a struggle for me. I am recovering from side effects suffered from way too fast drip of the IVIG. I ahve gone in the past year from 6.5 hours in that recliner per day to 4 hrs. and this week 2 hrs and 45 minutes. I don't know what to think. I'm waiting for a communication from my Neurologist on Monday. Too fast of a drip can blow your veins not to mention a heart attack and allergic reaction. the nurses told me that the FDA has ordered the pharmacist to raise the percentage from 5 to 10% concentration of the IVIG which means more med lwess liquid and smaller bottles and less time. Oh my aching head. And yes I had extra water and fluids.
