Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by fluctuating muscular weakness. MG is caused by a defect in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. It occurs when normal communication between the nerve and muscle is interrupted at the neuromuscular junction.
To someone affected by Myasthenia Gravis their symptoms vary according to the amount of activity undergone, the onset of infection or stress of any kind. As a result, diagnosis by a GP is extremely difficult. Also family and friends need a great deal of understanding to come to terms with a relative or friend who seems perfectly normal one moment, and a few hours, or even minutes later is droopy, listless and slurring their speech. Activities taken for granted by most of us, simple things like eating food, lifting arms, speaking to friends or laughing, become difficult or even impossible at times for Myasthenics. MG can affect anyone regardless of age, sex or race.
