What is Myasthenia Gravis?
The name itself comes from Greek and Latin words meaning “grave muscular illness”. The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation defines Myasthenia Gravis (MG), pronounced my-as-theen-ee-ah grav-us, as a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups.
Voluntary muscle groups include muscles used to walk, see, chew, swallow, and breathe. It is a very limiting, exhausting disorder that causes fatigue, and loss of strength.
