Hi, I am hoping that maybe someone can help me out with this. The first time I had IVIF (5 days), 2 years ago this December, things got worse for 4 weeks or so and never better. I had it again last April (3 days) and few weeks later I felt better than I had in years. It is my legs which start to weaken first, so I had 3 days of Solumedral again about 4 weeks ago and heave felt so lousy. My symptons are worse. Originally the dr. had wanted me to come back once a month for 3 months, but that had been postponed due to other problems which occurred. I was holding water, as much as up to gaining 8 lbs. in a day, so I am on a diruretic?(sp). Things are almost back under control, but I am so disappointed that things went so pooorly this time. Has anybody had the same or similar reactions? I would so appreciate any results people have had after an IVIF. Thanks so much.
