Myasthenia Gravis

What is myasthenia gravis?

Myasthenia gravis, sometimes called MG, is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that causes weakness in your voluntary muscles. The voluntary muscles are the ones that you can control. They include the muscles you use for:

  • Eye and eyelid movement
  • Facial expressions
  • Chewing
  • Talking
  • Swallowing
  • Breathing
  • Moving your arms and legs

You can also have weakness in other muscles. This weakness gets worse with activity, and better with rest.
