Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that affects voluntary muscles, leading to weakness and fatigue. In this condition, the immune system mistakenly targets and attacks the communication between nerves and muscles, impairing the normal functioning of muscles. Common symptoms include muscle weakness, especially in the face, neck, and extremities, as well as difficulties with activities like talking, swallowing, and breathing. The severity of symptoms can vary, and they may worsen with physical activity but improve with rest. Myasthenia gravis is typically managed with medications, such as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, immunosuppressants, and sometimes thymectomy. While there is no cure, treatment can help alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life for individuals with this condition.
