Hello

are you receiving your ivig for a neuropathy or something else.?

Pain can be treated with gabapentin.

Swelling needs to be investigated. You need lower extremity dopplers to see if you have vein problems, which would set you up for clots.

Thyroid disease, heart disease and kidney disease need to be ruled out.

If gabapentin does not work, lyrica is often used.

I need to know more details and I can help you further.
