What is Myasthenia Gravis?

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune condition that results in fatigue and weakened muscles. Someone with myasthenia gravis may feel increased weakness in their arms and legs as time goes on. One of the earliest symptoms is drooping eyelids. The weakness can also spread to other muscles, possibly affecting everyday actions such as:

  • Eating
  • Speaking
  • Swallowing
  • Breathing
  • Showing facial expressions
  • Standing upright
  • Walking

What causes myasthenia gravis? As an autoimmune disorder, these symptoms are the result of the body’s own immune system. The body normally communicates to the body via the nervous system. But with myasthenia gravis, antibodies attack the nervous system, preventing proper communication. This is why muscles feel weak and movements become difficult.

There are other factors that affect myasthenia gravis, such as an additional illness, pregnancy, menstrual periods, and significant stress.

How Can Myasthenia Gravis Be Treated?

Because there is no cure, Myasthenia Gravis treatments focus on symptom management. Generally, Myasthenia Gravis can be treated with oral medications that promote proper communication between the nerves and the muscles. However, for patients that are experiencing increasing symptoms, infusion therapy for Myasthenia Gravis could be the best option.

Many patients who do not see results with oral medications find great success managing their Myasthenia Gravis symptoms with IV therapy. Infusion therapy is when medication is administered directly into the bloodstream rather than needing to be digested first. This allows the medication to work faster than oral medicine.
