Behind the Mystery: Myasthenia Gravis
May 17, 2021
Myasthenia gravis (MG) means grave or serious muscle weakness, which is what patients experience with this rare, autoimmune disease. The hallmark symptom is muscle weakness that worsens after periods of activity and improves after periods of rest.
University of South Florida (USF) Health Department of Neurology physician Dr. Niraja Suresh details the disease spectrum, how a diagnosis is obtained, and how to manage the condition.
In November 2020, argenx, a global immunology company, premiered the first-ever MG documentary film series called, “A Mystery to Me.” The docuseries illustrated the perseverance of three individuals as they navigate the challenges of living with MG and adapt their lives to accommodate the debilitating illness.
Teresa, who was featured in the docuseries, was a busy mom, wife, and new business owner when she started to experience extreme weakness in her arms and legs. It took almost two years of seeing multiple doctors for her to get diagnosed. She shares her advice for other patients that anyone can relate to.
