What is Mysthenia?
Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is an auto-immune disease in which the immune system attacks and damages the nerve signal reception areas. This causes a breakdown between nerves and muscles and results in loss of effectiveness in the muscles of the arms, legs and eyes. The name ‘Myasthenia Gravis’ comes from the Greek and Latin words for ‘grave muscular weakness’. There are other forms which include Ocular Myasthenia, Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome and Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome.
