What are the symptoms?
Myasthenia Gravis is sometimes called the invisible disease because, often the symptoms in the early stages are subtle and variable. Because of this, it is a difficult disease to diagnose correctly.
Symptoms may be any of the following or a combination of these:
· drooping of one or both eyelids
· blurred or double vision
· difficulty controlling facial expression
· difficulty chewing or swallowing
· slurred and nasal speech
· difficulty breathing
· weakness in neck, arms, hands, fingers, legs
· weakness tends to worsen with exercise, and improves with rest.
Treatment is available through surgery and prescribed medication.
If you have any questions about Myasthenia Gravis or the treatments that are available, please contact your doctor.
