What Can I Expect With Myasthenia Gravis?

Other Conditions

Since myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease, it may occur in combination with other autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, lupus, pernicious anemia, or autoimmune thyroiditis.
 
 

Prognosis for Myasthenia Gravis

With treatment, the outlook for most patients with myasthenia gravis is good, and patients can expect to lead normal or nearly normal lives. However, in rare cases, the severe weakness of myasthenia gravis may cause respiratory failure, which will require immediate emergency medical care.
