About MG

Myasthenia Gravis, or MG for short, is a rare neurological autoimmune disease in which antibodies attack the acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junctions and produce fluctuating weakness & fatigability. Weakness increases with repeated activity, and usually improves with rest. Symptoms vary and may include: droopy eyelids, double vision, difficulty speaking and breathing, overall muscle weakness and fatigue. There is no known cure but there is treatment. No one treatment works for everyone, but treatment by a neurologist specializing in MG offers much help to stabilize this condition.
