Myasthenia Gravis / Neuromuscular Junction Disorders


Although there is no cure for myasthenia gravis, with the advent of current therapies, the outcome is not as “grave” as the disease name suggests. Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune, neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in muscles that worsens after periods of activity and improves with rest. Muscle weakness can also affect eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, chewing, talking, and swallowing.

With proper therapeutic intervention, you can expect to experience a high quality of life and normal life expectancy. Nevertheless, in some instances, myasthenia gravis may cause respiratory failure, which requires immediate emergency medical care. It is therefore of utmost importance for you to work hand-in-hand with a neurologist. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Hashwani for an evaluation by calling 281-313-0337.
