What is Myasthenia Gravis?


What is Myasthenia Gravis? A question asked all the time. By acquaintances, some friends and at others even by qualified practitioners.


It has happened a in fact, even at the best private hospitals where the resident doctors have had to rack their brains to remember where they heard the term ‘Myasthenia Gravis’ before.

This autoimmune disorder is so rare and so less spoken about.


If you have Myasthenia Gravis, then i sincerely suggest that you ensure informing any new doctor about the condition first. Yes, before he prescribes pills for a harmless bodyache or even a cough syrup.


Inform the Doctor

I make sure that I inform and or remind my dentist or skin specialist each time about Myasthenia Gravis and demand they speak to my neurologist before administering any anesthesia or advising specific drugs.

Always better to be safe than sorry.


Here is a graphic representation of what happens in the ‘snowflake’ disorder.


But if this makes no sense, then you could read about this debilitating illness here . And for those who want to know what is a day in the life of a Myasthenic, you could subscribe to this blog. I shall be sharing not only my journey through the illness but also things that worked and did not in terms of food, nutrition, thoughts, alternate therapies as also allopathy.


Meanwhile, as always praying and hoping the medical experts soon find a solution and cure to Myasthenia Gravis. Amen.
