IVIg Infusions for yet to be specially diagnosed autoimmune neuropathy
Hi, my mom got a lumbar puncture and her protein and glucose levels are high, but not alarmingly high. Her neurologist is recommending 5 day IVIg infusions. She is getting progressively worse, but all tests conducted, the results are normal. Her speech is slowing down, she needs assistance to walk or she will fall or crash into walls, she can’t write her name properly, drinking fluids causes her to choke. This is also happening very fast. Her team of doctors are baffled. There is no name to her diagnosis except “autoimmune neuropathy” Anyone else have similar symptoms or had the IVIg infusions? Before this, she was an exceptionally active person. I feel helpless. I don’t know where else to look. Thank you.
