Avatar f tn Please tell me what is myasthenia gravis. my daughter who is 8 months old has IP, and i would like to know what that is ....
Avatar m tn Do you mean myasthenia gravis? I couldn't be sure about Harvoni, haven't heard it mentioned, but it was definitely a known possible risk with the old interferon treatments.
Avatar m tn Have there been any tests on which some of the doctors are basing their myasthenia gravis diagnosis on? From what I can see, myasthenia gravis is a problem with the immune system producing anti-bodies that attack one's own body, but with your father's history of stroke, I wonder if he couldn't have suffered a kind of mini-stroke?
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with both myasthenia gravis and stiff person syndrome, these were confirmed by lab work and emg. Have you ever heard of both in a patient at the same time?
Avatar n tn I've been diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis after a recent repetitive nerve stimulation test. I've had double vision since 10 years ago, but it became generalized (or at least more obvious) only two years ago after a virus infection and a severe reaction to antibiotic. My symptoms were for a long time vague, so I spent years without being diagnosed. Besides my double vision, my second complain is neck strain and pain, which gives me also arm pain and even finger numbness.
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old female. i am suffering from myasthenia gravis for the past one year, the first sympton include ptosis of right eyelid, then i was diagnosed of having a thymoma of about 4 cm. The doctors suggested of getting an thymectomy done, but as i am very scared i refused to go for it. Now I am treated by an endocrinologist with harmone thyrapy and ldn. I am taking ldn for the past one month. But the symptoms of myasthenia are increasing, muscles of mouth and throat are afftected.
2015036 tn?1332997788 I know all of these can be caused my MS, and I think they can also be caused my myasthenia gravis. What I want to know is this: Is it possible these symptoms are caused by fibromaylgia? I have tried researching this myself- and I can't find anything. Then I remembered that the REAL fibromyalgia experts were right here. Please help, what do you think?
Avatar f tn I got in touch with an autoimmune helpline and they said I could possibly have Myasthenia Gravis. They advised me to do the ice test, where I needed to put some ice wrapped in a cloth on the closed eye to see if it would made the eyelid droop and the only things I noticed were that my right eye seemed to close up a bit more and was slower opening fully. I was tested positive for ANA and TPOab, just wondering if there is a connection at all?
Avatar f tn Hello. Have you received a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis? Have you specifically had an MG workup? Sorry to ask more questions than have answers/information. As a patient, I would suggest that you become familiar with the medication you are taking. Hope you are feeling better soon.
3204881 tn?1345499926 I went to the neurologist today to follow up on some blood work and he told me that I have myasthenia gravis. He explained it to me in layman's terms..... Is anyone familiar with this? Any info you might be able to give would be much appreciated.
Avatar n tn Gait took a day or so longer and pupils started to react after five days but remain sluggish. Drug induced myasthenia gravis is described rarely in the literature. My very experienced vet says he has never seen it. Has anyone else? We have restarted the med with 2 mg of prednisolone added qd and so far so good. Make any sense to you?
Avatar n tn I think you might have "myasthenia gravis". It's basically muscle weakness and it normally starts with eyelids. I also have the same problem and was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis few years ago. You need to go see a neurologist. One easy test for this is called cold test. Next time when the problem occurs, try put ice on your eyelids for 2 minutes and you should feel better if you have myasthenia gravis.
Avatar m tn My birth mother died from complications of MS. Now my son has Ocular Myasthenia Gravis and I'm wondering if there is a connection?
Avatar f tn The test for voltage gated calcium channels is for Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome and is different from Myasthenia gravis. Myasthenia can explain some of your symptoms such as the tiredness and the loss of strength. Form the other symptoms you described I am more inclined towards an autoimmune disorder which is affecting several organ systems. Pernicious anemia can be caused by atrophic gastritis which is in turn be caused by autoimmune diseases.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with ocular myasthenia gravis (left eyelid weakness) since I was probably 2 years old. Currently, I'm 24. My symptoms have never deteriorated until recently, I feel that my right eyelid is weak in comparison to my left. Reason for this is that I feel as if my left eye is forced open wide. There is no muscle weakness in the left eye at all which is odd, and the widely opened eye feeling is bothersome.
Avatar f tn I'd sure contact your doctor who diagnosted you with myasthenia gravis and report the increase in symptoms. I'm far from a health profressional, but it doesn't sound cardiac in nature. Keep us informed.
Avatar f tn I have occular myasthenia gravis, it has never become systemic over a ten year period and my doctors, both neurology and eye, don't believe it ever will. Today, I found out that I have developed cataracts in both eyes, but much worse in my right eye, the one the myasthenia gravis affects.
Avatar n tn s 40 and has to have a monthly shot for something related to myasthenia gravis. Basically, is it a good or bad idea for her to travel to areas of the world with so much risk of disease?
Avatar f tn Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a rare autoimmune neuromuscular disease and the hallmark of this disease is muscle weakness that increases during periods of activity and improves after periods of rest. You may function normally sometimes and another time experience loss of strength. In more than half the people who develop MG, their first signs and symptoms involve eye problems such as drooping of one or both eyelids (ptosis) or double vision (diplopia).
Avatar n tn I am a female age 54, being tested by neurologist for Myasthenia Gravis with possible associated disease. Positive EMG, positive clinical assessment, sero-negative. Insomniac for 15 months when symptoms emerged. Prior to that had a nontoxic cold nodule. When I awake, in the morning and every time I awake during the night, I awake to medically confirmed non-cardiac, non-musculoskeletal chest pain. Pain seems to be consistently related to sleep/wake mechanism only.
Avatar n tn i have similar symptoms and i was diagnsed with myasthenia gravis.
Avatar f tn M y eyes doctor sent me to do some tests to Myasthenia Gravis. The blood test result to antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor was 0.2. I should do also the Single Fibre EMG. My questions are: Is there a normal account to antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor? Or a healthy man or women don't have acetylcholine antibody at all? What does it mean 0.2 ? Is there another possible reason to have 0.2 antibody acetylcholine?
