Myasthenia Gravis (MG)

Myasthenia Gravis (MG)

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is an neuromuscular autoimmune disease. It targets the communication point between the nerve and muscle (called the “neuromuscular junction.”) In MG, antibodies block, alter, or destroy the neurotransmitter receptors on muscle tissue. Since the muscles can’t receive the signal to contract, people with myasthenia become weak. MG causes weakness in voluntary muscles that worsens with activity and improves with rest. MG’s primary symptoms fluctuate, vary in severity and occur in many combinations. Symptoms may include droopy eyelids, double or blurred vision, weak arms, hands, neck, face or legs; excessive fatigue, difficulty chewing, smiling, swallowing, talking or breathing. Myasthenia Gravis affects both men and women and occurs across all racial and ethnic groups and can occur in all ages.
