@Ema IVIG is off the table. I was too sick on it and honestly, I would rather die of an infection than do it again. You seem to take a lot of stuff that I could never do. Again, I think it really depends on how long you have been ill, etc. I am not strong enough for the IVIG and I felt NO better on it, only sicker. In fact, my nails, ever since having been on it break like no tomorrow. They are so thin now. My system is too sensitive, my liver is not working well enough to handle it and it's way too much for my body to process. The new immunologist who specializes in CVID in Philly is not wanting me on it. He saw my rash and was in awe of it. It covered me from head to toe. That was from the IVIG. Even if I did it SubQ, I have no desire to feel so sick every week. And, I felt NUTS on it. Again, it was the way that I was processing it. My body didn't know how to handle it. I am not even sure if I have CVID. So many can take it with no problems and I am so sick and have CFS. It's a whole different ball of wax. Back in 2002, I could do a lot of this stuff. I could take hydrocortisone. Not now. I could take a lot of stuff, but the years have passed, I have become older and worse and no one has gotten to the bottom of what the hell is going on with me. I went to the naturopath because I wanted help with my adrenals and he said that the adrenals are a mess because of a chronic persistent bacteria in the gut which may or may not be true. I think what @GracieJ said is right no. HE is going about this all wrong. He needs to build me up first and then attack....slowly. I counted that I was on 20 pills a day. I refuse to get sicker in order to get better. It's one thing to feel more tired, it's another thing to be in more pain, not sleep, itching, crying and feeling like an absolute mess. That's not normal. I also think or can't stand that all of these doc's want you to buy THEIR supplements. I have closets full of all of this crap. I really don't need to buy theirs when I already have 2 different kinds of milk thistle. They all insist that theirs is best. So, I see him in 2 weeks and I will give him a reality check on how ill I am. The only thing I know right now, I can handle Chinese herbs easily, I can take Vitamin D, Rhodiola and Omega 3's and ONE drop of milk thistle tincture in Dandelion tea. That's what I can handle. Oh, and Natural Calm in a glass of water. No problem. Chinese herbs I drink and I do really well with them. But, will they get me better? No go so far. They just help with sleep, which is SO essential. And, with keeping me more calm.
