What is Myasthenia Gravis?

Myasthenia Gravis is a serious neuromuscular disorder which attacks the muscles and nerves responsible for carrying out various activities. It is also known to be a prolonged neuromuscular disorder which occurs when the immune system erroneously attacks nerves and muscles that play a part in controlling their functionality. What happens in such disorder is that the voluntary muscles are the most affected and start to weaken. It becomes very difficult for the victim to perform even the simplest of activities. Myasthenia Gravis reaches its extreme severity when the person affected is not resting because it doesn’t cause any harm when a person is at rest. In case it gets worsened it can be brought back to normal by taking proper rest. It does affect the routine life of the sufferers and cause major hindrance in the routine activities such as eating, drinking water, swallowing, walking, standing up and some other events like these.
