Myasthenia Gravis Support Group

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a neuromuscular disease leading to fluctuating muscle weakness and fatiguability. The hallmark of myasthenia gravis is muscle weakness that increases during periods of activity and improves after periods of rest. Although myasthenia gravis may affect any voluntary muscle, muscles that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, and swallowing are most frequently affected.

    I'm freaking out about flu & azathioprine

    Someone at work was diagnosed with the flu.  I don't have totally close contact with him, but he's on my team and sits a few cubicles away.  Does anyone have any advice as far as looking for signs, when to see the doctor, or can even just calm me down about worrying about it?  What's it like getting the flu on immunosuppressants?  Do you end up in the hospital?  I didn't get my shot yet this...

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
