Myasthenia gravis (pronounced My-as-theen-ee-a Grav-us) comes from the Greek and Latin words meaning "grave muscular weakness." The most common form of MG is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups.
This disease destroys the receptor sites in the muscles that receive nerve impulses, instructing them to move. The reduction in the number of receptor sites is caused by an antibody that destroys or blocks the receptor site. MGA is estimated to effect 20 out of every 100,000 people, is not contagious or hereditary and effects all races, genders and age groups.
Common symptoms can include a drooping eyelid, blurred or double vision, slurred speech, difficulty chewing and swallowing, weakness in the arms and legs, chronic muscle fatigue, and difficulty breathing.
There is no known cure for MG, but there are effective treatments that allow many-but not all-people with MG to lead full lives. To learn more about MG, visit http://myasthenia.org/.
