Thank you for posting your query.Myasthenia gravis
(MG) is a fully treatable disease, and there are good medicines available to treat this condition.
Symptomatic relief can be obtained by using medicines such as pyridostigmine
Since MG is an auto-immune disease, we also need to use medicines such as steroids
, etc to reduce the antibody level.
CT scan of the chest should be done to look for thymic enlargement, if it is noted, then, thymectomy
surgery is required.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
