What is Myasthenia Gravis?

What is Myasthenia Gravis?

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder characterized by fatigue and muscle weakness. It occurs when there is a breakdown in communication between your muscles and nerve endings. It causes your body to develop antibodies that destroy or prevent crucial muscle contractions, thus resulting in muscle weakness and exhaustion. Though anyone can develop myasthenia gravis at any time, it is more common in men above 60 years and women below 40 years. Though it does not cause severe disabilities, leaving it untreated can impact your routine activities, affecting your quality of life. This is why myasthenia gravis requires immediate care.

What Are the Symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis?

Though any muscles can be impaired with myasthenia gravis, it often affects the facial muscles (throat and eyelids), thus impacting your ability to make facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, chewing, raising your eyebrows, etc.

As your condition progresses, you can experience various symptoms, including:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Droopy eyelid
  • Memory loss or cognitive impairment
  • Altered speech
  • Reduced facial expressions
  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty holding up your head
  • Limb weakness
  • Difficulty walking

Myasthenic crisis patients may require a respirator or other treatments for proper breathing. The degree of muscle impairment varies depending on the severity of your condition. If your condition is severe, you may experience respiratory muscle weakness, which is referred to as a myasthenic crisis that needs to be addressed immediately.

How Is Myasthenia Gravis Diagnosed?

We will review your symptoms and medical history and perform a physical examination to check for droopy eyelids, impaired facial expressions, difficulties in moving, etc.

Following tests are recommended for a complete diagnosis:

Neurological Exam

We will check your reflexes, senses of light and touch, muscle strength and tone, balance, and coordination to examine your nervous system functioning.

Blood Test

It is performed to check for the presence of antibodies that block the neurotransmitters in your muscles.

Imaging Test

CT or MRI scan is done to look for a tumor or other abnormality in your thymus (a gland in your lymphatic system).

What Treatments Can I Expect for My Myasthenia Gravis?

Depending on your symptoms and severity, recommend following treatments are recommended to treat your Myasthenia gravis:


  • Cholinesterase Inhibitors - To enhance communication between muscles and nerves.
  • Corticosteroids - To limit antibody production by inhibiting the immune system.

IV Therapy

  • Plasmapheresis - To remove antibodies blocking the signal transmission from nerve endings to your muscle receptors.
  • Intravenous Immunoglobulin - Provides your body with normal antibodies to alter your immune system response.


Some people with myasthenia gravis may have a tumor in their thymus, which needs to be removed with a Thymectomy surgery. It can be either performed laparoscopically or conventionally.
