What is myasthenia gravis?

Myasthenia Gravis is a rare condition which is characterised by
fluctuating, sometimes fatal muscle weakness.

A problem occurs when the neuro-muscular junction is damaged so
messages from the nerve cannot get through effectively to the muscle resulting in limited use. Any skeletal muscle, or group of muscles, can be affected and exercise or repetitive use of the muscle, weakens rather than strengthens.
