What Is a Myasthenic Crisis?

Myasthenia Gravis Symptoms and Myasthenic Crisis

A myasthenic crisis occurs when the muscles that control breathing weaken to the point that ventilation is inadequate, creating a medical emergency. In people whose respiratory muscles are weak, crises may be triggered by:
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • An adverse reaction to medication
  • Emotional stress.

Final Thoughts on Symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis
