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.

  

There is no cure at this time, but there is hope! Please share with everyone you know to increase awareness, thank you!
