Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The symptoms of myasthenia gravis (MG) are often simply classified as excessive fatigue rather than evaluated as different signs of disease progression. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the medical symptoms of patients with MG who had been under treatment for many years. Patients diagnosed with MG were compared to healthy controls. A survey questionnaire was used and differences were evaluated using non-parametric statistics. Health care givers should be aware of these differences in order to facilitate early appropriate treatment, to decrease disability, and to increase the quality of life.
