Hi,

Myasthenia Gravis is not a fatal disease though there is no complete cure. The symptoms can be controlled with proper treatment and management by specialist. You should consult a Neurologist for Myasthenia Gravis. Please let your treating doctor refer you to one immediately for better management.

However the nail problem that you have could not be related to MG. It is something different and has to be examined for local causes like fungal infection of the nail bed or age related degeneration.

Hope this helps.

I am under medication already and have been for a few months but I am not getting better. Would you be able to recommend a doctor in the Dallas Fort Worth area?

As I said it is better to XXXXXXX a Neurologist. I did my best to find the right ones in your area with priority as patient satisfaction and board certification.

Below is the link that you can take help. I tried to limit within 50 miles of FW, TX.
