I was diagnosed with MG back in December of last year after an ER visit due to slurred speech. A blood test came back elevated and I was told I have MG. Only symptoms I have after 8 months are slurred speech sometimes when eating and difficulty swallowing sometimes. I was never given the numbers for how much the blood test was elevated. Does this number matter? Is it possible I have something else? I have a neurologist appointment on Sept 16 and will ask for the results of that initial blood test that the diagnosis was made from.
