Myasthenia Gravis (MG)
Myasthenia gravis is a disease characterized by weakness of muscles under voluntary control. This weakness worsens the more the muscles are used and improves with rest. This is an autoimmune disorder in which muscle weakness is caused by an abnormal immune response. Common symptoms include vision problems, difficulty swallowing or chewing and difficulty with climbing stairs or lifting objects.
