Hi, I am new here. For months my igg total count has been 525. I don't know what the numbers are broken down in classes. But I keep getting infections. I do have COPD as well but my pulmonary Dr. Seems to think I have a immune deficiency. My other immunogoblins are normal except for the g. Sometimes my CBC bloodwork is bad with low rbc and sometimes they are high and sometimes perfectly normal. Same with white cells. I do know my rbc are odd shaped like oval. Not sure what that means anyway. Oh and I also had last March 2016 a DVT with PE. In different CT scans to check to make sure all clear in Sept and Nov my spleen was enlarged. It was never mentioned to me as I found out myself looking at results in the patient portal. Other than constantly having a lung infection I'm tired, have weekness in my legs like they are weights. Have heart palpitations, get absolutely exhausted after an outing.also sore knees and back. And I'm right handed and the past few years my handwriting has become unledgable. My Dr did a seed rate and rhumatoid test which came back fine. He's also doing lupus but I have no rashes anywhere. I was a bad anemic last summer where I needed to get 5 iron infusions. I just don't know what it could be to make me like this. My anxiety is not helping either as I keep thinking the worse and thinking it's some kind of leukemia. I have had a bad year with loosing my mom to Alzheimers and other stress. Could all that be making me sick? Can stress affect your blood levels? Anyone ever hear of that? Also keep in mind I'm 51 female and at that stage as well. Anyone have any imput?
hi everyone! I have been doing Hizentra Sub-Q for almost a year now and I just got my Igg results. It only went up 100 points. Shouldn't it have gone up more than that? I have not felt any better and have been getting sick a lot. Or is that normal?????Susan
Hello. I'm a 66 y/o woman and was diagnsosed with CVID two years ago. It took the doctors at the hospital a YEAR of writing appeals to Medicare and my supplimental insurance company to finally get approval for IVIG infusion therapy. I don't think of myself as being abnormally stupid, but I'm apparently not understanding how this insurance works. I was told Medicare paid 80% and the suppliment...
