    It looks like I will be starting ivig - possibly next week. The first time I have it done I need to go 5 days in a row. I am a bit nervous and am wondering what to expect. For those of you who have gotten ivig, were you pretty miserable and if so, for how long? Should I expect to be out of commission for a week or 2? I'm most worried about a headache I guess.

    It was approved based on neuropathy, so it is not for CFS per se.

    I was fine with IVIG, took Benadryl which my doctor recommended. Sadly, no effect on my ME symptoms.

    Hope that it goes well for you!

    Thanks for your input!
    What were you taking it for? Do you remember your dose? And how often?
