Myasthenia gravis Homeopathic treatment


The term Myasthenia gravis means grave muscle weakness. MG is a chronic progressive auto-immune disorder causing muscle weakness. Myasthenia gravis is characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue of the voluntary muscles. This condition is more common in women younger than 40 and in men older than 60. This condition is believed to result from an immune dysfunction which causes the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to become less effective. Some muscle groups are more commonly affected than others and include the eye muscles, face and throat muscles and muscles in the arms and legs. Although myasthenia gravis affects any voluntary muscle, muscles of eyes and eyelids muscles of face and muscle of swallowing are most frequently affected. The onset of the disorder may be sudden. Symptoms often are not immediately recognized as myasthenia gravis. In MG, there is weakness of voluntary muscles (those controlled by will) and easy fatigability. This weakness comes up during periods of exertion and improves after rest. As given in the Merck Manual:Myasthenia gravis involves episodic muscle weakness and easy fatigability caused by autoantibody- and cell-mediated destruction of acetylcholine receptors. It is more common among young women but may occur at any age. Symptoms worsen with muscle activity and lessen with rest. In simpler words Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune neuromuscular (involving both muscles as well as nerves) disease, which leads to progressive muscle weakness and fatigability (patients get easily tired). The symptoms of Myasthenia gravis characteristically worsen on exertion/Physical activity and are better by rest. Myasthenia gravis occurs in all ethnic groups and both genders. It most commonly affects young adult women (under 40) and older men (over 60), but it can occur at any age. It usually affects muscles such as those that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, chewing, talking, and swallowing are often, but not always, involved in the disorder. The muscles that control breathing and neck and limb movements may also be affected. MG is an abnormality of the transmission of signals at the Neuro-Muscular Junction (NMJ). (Signals travel from brain to muscles via the nerves and the place where nerve joins muscle is called neuro-muscular junction.) ¦ Females are affected more often than males ¦ Age of onset in females is during second to third decade ¦ Onset is after sixth decade in males ¦ 2 out of every 100000 people are affected by MG
