" I have not had IVIG but I belong to another online group that people have. They say a headache the next day is fairly normal and having paid for a few days is normal. I would absolutely talk to your doctor and see what can be done. Most the people that talk about IVIG say they take some Tylenol or Ibuprophen before their infusion. It might be that simple.

Best of luck. "

" I hope they are able to help you. The other group also recommends lots and lots of water the day before and the day of. Sounds like gallons of water. That might help too. "

" I had four rounds of it in the hospital for low WBC and afterwards ended up having migraines for several days along with a stiff neck. I ended up having to go to the ER but eventually it passed and haven't had it since. "
