Missing the Signs of Myasthena Gravis?

Myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune condition affecting about 20 people per 100,000 around the world. The disease is more common in women under the age of 40 and men over the age of 60 but can affect people at any age. Myasthenia gravis develops when communication between the nerves and muscles breaks down. The condition is characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue and can affect any of the muscles that you can control.

While myasthenia gravis may seem to come on quickly as symptoms rapidly develop, there are some early warning signs of the condition. There is no cure for the disease, but fat stem cell therapy from Innovations Stem Cell Center can help.

The Early Warning Signs of Myasthenia Gravis

Over half of the people who develop myasthenia gravis experience eye problems at the onset of their condition. These eye problems may include:

Ptosis. Ptosis, or drooping of the eyelids, can affect one or both eyelids.

Diplopia. Also known as double vision. One or both eyes may be affected. The double vision experienced by myasthenia gravis sufferers can be horizontal or vertical and typically goes away when one eye is closed.

These symptoms may not be initially relatable to a disease that affects the muscles, which may cause people to seek out treatments from eye doctors or other specialists. As a result, their condition goes undiagnosed, and they go without help.

Other Symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis

In addition to the eyes being affected, other symptoms of myasthenia gravis include:

  • Muscle weakness in the fingers, hands, arms, legs and neck that makes it hard to move and use your extremities
  • Changes in facial expressions and the inability to make facial expressions

There are more severe side effects associated with the disease that affect around 15 percent of the people with myasthenia gravis. These symptoms include impaired speech, problems chewing and swallowing, and shortness of breath. Some myasthenia gravis sufferers also have trouble holding up their head.

How Can Fat Stem Cell Therapy Help People Living with Myasthenia Gravis?

Mainstream medical treatments for myasthenia gravis manage symptoms but do not cure the disease. These treatments include medications, steroids, blood transfusions and, in some cases, surgical removal of the thymus gland.

Stem cell therapy also offers help for patients with myasthenia gravis. Fat stem cell therapy uses the stem cells taken from the affected patient to help heal damaged tissue, which reduces uncomfortable symptoms.
