I May Have Ocular Myasthenia Gravis

For now the doctor told me I have the ocular type of Myasthenia Gravis (MG).  But I believe it can change into generalized MG.
Here's an explanation.
"MG is differentiated into two major clinical forms: ocular MG, in which the patient has predominantly ocular symptoms, and generalized MG, in which the patient develops generalized proximal weakness. One study found that, over a mean follow-up period of 17 years, approximately 15%-17% of patients with MG had strictly ocular symptoms." (from the web)
My energy levels are low and I was told to use a walker for the time being.  I'm waiting for lab results. Medication helps with vertigo and nausea. I nap a lot.
This video is technical and a little hard to follow but it explains my situation.


I hope to be back to normal soon!

  1. I hope you're back to normal soon, also, John. I've heard of this but didn't know much about it. Take care, and best of luck getting things under control.
