Hi Beth. I'm glad you're here.
I'm real close to Portland, OR. I'm In Oregon Cityt. right down the road from PDX.
I ahd been telling robert i sense change in my vision but i couldn't figure it out. It was when my daughter visited about a month ago she said "mom, open your eye" Just the left eyelid was more than 3/4 closed & a week later the right started in. No sagging or numbness in my face. I called my eye specialist and he said to come right in. He msut have suspected M because he ordered blood work to look for it and one other disorder. It was positive for MG.
Neurologist appt went okay i did lots of arm exercises and Dr. asked me many ?'s do i ahve trouble breathing? weakness anywhere, etc. He put me on a pill called Pyridostigmine. It has helped my eyes a lot and I've learned to eat before taking my pill and with milk to avoid upset stomache.
I'm waiting for a CT scan of my chest (Thymus) and a breathing test.
MG patients can ahve trouble breathing and trouble swallowing and chest muscles can close up.
I'm feeling pretty good have my old energy back Just frustrated cuz of the rain.
Right eye is fully opened up Left eye is getting there. Vision in left eye is slightly blurry.
I ahve an optholmoplogist appt comign up in a few to check out my eyes again. Eye specialist is keeping a close watch on me.
thanks for asking.
