Intravenous Immunoglobulin Therapy (IVIG) for POIS?

I haven't seen a discussion about this. Has there been a POISer who has tried this therapy?

I guess not. IVIG is something that could be explored regarding autoimmune theory.

Yes I got Neuropathy doses of IVIG back in 2015, I thought it was helping me but after a few months I got a very mysterious symptom and had to stop getting it. Unfortunately the symptom persisted long after so I never could restart it. It was a pain to get Insurance to cover it

I have pois which develops into something like gulliane barre sindrom, every few years. Simptomes last one or two years. Symptoms feel like pois symptomes, but 10 times stronger. Pois is like weak gullian barre syndrome. Medication for gulliane barre is immunoglobulin. So this could probably help pois. But i think immunoglobulin just helps to stop atack of the immune system quicker as if you would wait the natural way. That means immunoglobulin would just make pois attack quicker to heal and not prevent it. If it would work. I think...
