Understanding Myasthenia Gravis



Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles, which are responsible for breathing and moving parts of the body, including the arms and legs. 


A typical characteristic of myasthenia gravis is muscle weakness that worsens after periods of activity and improves after periods of rest.  Certain muscles such as those that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression are often involved in the disorder.  The muscles that control breathing and neck and limb movements may also be affected.


There is no known cure but with therapies most cases of myasthenia gravis are not as "grave" as the name implies.  Available treatments can control symptoms and often allow people to have a relatively high quality of life.  Most individuals with the condition have a normal life expectancy.



What are the symptoms of myasthenia gravis?


Although myasthenia gravis may affect any skeletal muscle, muscles that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, and swallowing are most frequently affected.  The onset of the disorder may be sudden and symptoms often are not immediately recognized as myasthenia gravis.


In most cases, the first noticeable symptom is weakness of the eye muscles.  In others, difficulty swallowing and slurred speech may be the first signs.  The degree of muscle weakness involved in myasthenia gravis varies greatly among individuals, ranging from a localized form limited to eye muscles (ocular myasthenia), to a severe or generalized form in which many muscles—sometimes including those that control breathing—are affected.


Symptoms may include:



  • drooping of one or both eyelids (ptosis)

  • blurred or double vision (diplopia) due to weakness of the muscles that control eye movements

  • a change in facial expression

  • difficulty swallowing

  • shortness of breath

  • impaired speech (dysarthria)

  • weakness in the arms, neck, hands, fingers and legs.


What is a myasthenic crisis?


A myasthenic crisis is a medical emergency that occurs when the muscles that control breathing weaken to the point where individuals require a ventilator to help them breathe.


Approximately 15 to 20 percent of people with myasthenia gravis experience at least one myasthenic crisis.  This condition usually requires immediate medical attention and may be triggered by infection, stress, surgery, or an adverse reaction to medication.  However, up to one-half of people may have no obvious cause for their myasthenic crisis.  Certain medications have been shown to cause myasthenia gravis. However, sometimes these medications may still be used if it is more important to treat an underlying condition.


It is important to have this condition displayed to first responders in an emergency in case you are having trouble communicating.



One of the best ways to achieve this is with a Mediband wristband. You’ll let the staff know how to treat you and what not to do. This is vital if you can’t talk when something happens.
