I have been getting lots of test for myasthenia gravis for a while now. I have a dropping eye lid and my opthamologist reffered me to a neuro opthomologist and he did an ice test. It was possitive. He sent me for blood tests and they took a LOT of blood, I was low positive on one of the three tests for MG antibodies. He sent me for a CT of the chest and there was an abnormality but I was refferred to a thorastic surgeon who said that nothing needs to be surgically assessed at this time and I have a repeat CT scan scheduled for june. I have also had a tensilon test that was negative and more blood tests by a neurologist, only this time I came back borderline possitive for a different MG antibody. Has anyone else had anything like this? I am awaiting an appointment with a neuro muscular specialist in August. Any help anybody can give me would be great!!! Thanks so much!!
