My husband was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis in 2016. He is extremely weak now. Takes 60 mg. Pyro 3 times a day. Trying to get in to see Dr., but can’t get in until middle of August. He was diagnosed also with dementia just after that at Center for Senior health in Akron. After much urging by family Dr. We went to a psychologist and after much testing he said he does not have dementia, it is the myasthenia causing him to be so slow and he just can’t do the timed tests. Does this make sense to anyone?
The day after Thanksgiving I broke my elbow. Two months later I got out of the long-arm cast. My arm was very sore and stiff and as time went on, my arm felt weak. It has been 5 months now and my arm is still weak. Sometimes, I can't even lift it up over my head. I am wondering if the MG is preventing my muscles to gain strength? Any thoughts on this? TIA.
Got positive lab results for MG.Polymyastitis may be an issue but not yet confirmed. Got MRI to see if Thymus Gland is a factor.I'm assuming best case would be if Gland is bad then maybe my symptoms improve once it's removed. Meeting with Neurologist on 4-26.My weakness and fatigue is rampant. Went downhill about a year ago.What is the most important question I can ask my Doctor? How much and how...
