What Is Myasthenia Gravis?

  • Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic disorder with symptoms of weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the muscles that are under your voluntary control. It’s caused by a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles. It is a chronic autoimmune disorder that results in progressive skeletal muscle weakness.

  • MMGcauses rapid fatigue and loss of strength upon exertion that improves after rest. Myasthenia gravis is caused by a defect in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. Usually when impulses travel down the nerve, the nerve endings release a neurotransmitter substance called acetylcholine.

  • In myasthenia gravis, antibodies produced by the body’s own immune system block, alter or destroy the receptors for acetylcholine.

  • MG is associated with other autoimmune diseases. Patients who have family members suffering from disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, lupus may have an increased risk for myasthenia gravis.
  • Approximately 15% of MG patients have a tumor of the thymus (also called as thymoma) and 60–80% have abnormal enlargement (hyperplasia) of the thymus. The thymus produces cells involved in immune responses and is located below the larynx and above the heart.

Myasthenia gravis affects approximately 2 out of every 100,000 people and can occur at any age. It is most common in women between the ages of 18 and 25. In men, the condition usually develops between 60 and 80 years of age.

Types of Myasthenia gravis

  • Myasthenia gravis can be classified according to which skeletal muscles are affected.

  • Generalized MG: Within a year of onset 85–90% of patients develop generalized MG, characterized by weakness in the trunk, arms and legs.

  • 10–15% of patients have weakness only in muscles that control eye movement. This type is called ocular myasthenia gravis.

  • Congential MG: Other types of MG include congenital, which is an inherited condition caused by genetic defect and occurs in infants born to mothers who have MG. Congenital MG develops at or shortly after birth and causes generalized symptoms.

  • Transient Neonatal MG: A temporary condition that develops in 10–20% of infants born to mothers who have MG. Transient neonatal MG is caused by circulation of the mother’s antibodies through the placenta and it lasts as long as the mother’s antibodies remain in the infant (usually a few weeks after birth).

Symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis

  • Specific muscle weakness, particularly in the eyes, face and neck

  • Difficulty swallowing, chewing or speaking

  • Double vision

  • Fatigue, especially later in the day

  • Infertility

  • Menstrual cycle difficulties

  • Symptoms can be aggravated by emotional stress

  • Viral respiratory infection

  • Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism

Myasthenia Gravis Allopathic Treatment Options

  • Myasthenia gravis symptoms can be controlled but not cured with medical treatment.

  • Some medications like cholinesterase inhibitors, such as pyridostigmine (Mestinon) and corticosteroids improve neuromuscular transmission and increase muscle strength, and some suppress the production of abnormal antibodies.

  • These medications must be used with careful medical follow-up because they may cause major side effects.

  • Thymectomy the surgical removal of the thymus gland (which often is abnormal in myasthenia gravis patients), improves symptoms in certain patients and may cure some individuals, possibly by re-balancing the immune system.

  • Other therapies include plasmapheresis which a procedure in which abnormal antibodies are removed from the blood.

  • High-dose intravenous immune globulin (IVIG), which temporarily modifies the immune system and provides the body with normal antibodies from donated blood.
