Can the third nerve palsy have same symptoms of MG?? Two years ago had thymus cancer surgery after chemo and radiation after surgery. How they found my cancer I was having MG symptoms with my eyes chewing and breathing and with a CT scan. I have done great for two years pet scans ever 6 months have been good so now I am having trouble with my eyes the eye doctor said third nerve palsy did a CT scan and a CT scan with contrast to rule out brain tumor and aneurism they came back good. Due for another Pet scan in May. The thymus was removed so I do not know were to go from here!!!
Dear patient 3 Rd cranial.nerve also known as opthalmic nerve supplies eye muscles. myasthenia gravis affects skeletal muscles of whole body and not only eyes. Symptoms of both are different. thymus cancer is associated with myasthenia gravis so treatment of thymoma may lead to correction of MG. you need to consult opthalmic surgeon for detailed assessment. Visit to neurophysician is also required.
