I know a woman who was recently diagnosed with this autoimmune disorder. I had not heard of this until I spoke with her, so I decided to learn more about it and share this with you.
Myasthenia gravis an autoimmune disease that causes weakness in the muscles under your control. It happens because of a problem in communication between the nerves and muscles. The body’s own immune system makes antibodies that block or change some of the nerve signals to your muscles. This makes the muscles weaker.
