I was watching “The Doctors” today and heard about a disease called Myasthenia something and realized the guest on the show described pretty much the same symptoms I have. Please explain to me just a little about this disease.

This is interesting. You know first year of medical school, students go for medical help suspecting they're having a certain disease, many of them think they have the same diseases, it turns out the disease will just lectured in their previous class. This is common in people. Relax.

YES Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune disease. I was diagnosed in 2008.

I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis four years ago. I am now 72. I am on Prednisone, 12.5 mg every other day. I have neck, back, shoulder, full arm and hands, feet and calves, weakness. Prednisone controls it fairly well, but my body hurts when I stand too long. My GP says it's pain from old age. How old are you?
I hear that all the time. It’s hurts because you’re get old. They could put it a nicer way
