Hi.. I have had MS for a little over a year now and am about to start IVIG treatment for 5 days.
I am interested in knowing if anyone has first hand experience with it and can tell me what to expect as far as side effects, how it feels, advice on whether I should take aspiring or do any prep prior to the infusion etc. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Hey Molasses,
 
I am sorry you find yourself here.  We have one member here that uses IVIG.  We have another that uses it for ideopathic anaphaxisis instead of MS.  She has told me that she can occasionally get a headache afterwards.  There is the slight chance of an allergic reaction.  I have not heard of anything other than that.  I wish you the very best of luck with that.  Please come back and tell us how you are doing.
