Help for Myasthenia Gravis

Wednesday, 25 January 2012 09:26 AM

Question: Can you tell me about the condition myasthenia? Is there a cure?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
In myasthenia, there is weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the muscles under your voluntary control. The cause is a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles. There is no cure for myasthenia gravis, but treatment can help relieve signs and symptoms — such as weakness of arm or leg muscles, double vision, drooping eyelids, and difficulties with speech, chewing, swallowing and breathing. Consult your doctor who will give you the treatment for your symptoms.
