    I received it Monday. I slept all day yesterday and had the worst headache of my life. Then last night I started throwing up and went till this morning. I felt awful. Of course the docs are on Christmas vacation so I have no way of knowing if this is typical. I would appreciate any feedback.

    Also, my new wonderful rhuemy called and I need a thyroid ultrasound. Two doctors in 2 weeks have done more for me than 20 doctors in 5 years!!!

    Merry Christmas,

    IVIG makes me very adgitated a moody and hyper. The side effects last for a couple days and then temper down. Did you take benadryl before hand? That helps mitigate some of the side effects.
