Myasthenia gravis, which translates as "severe muscle weakness" from Greek and Latin, is an autoimmune disease characterized by muscle fatigue and loss of muscle control. In myasthenia gravis, the body's immune system produces faulty, destructive antibodies which disrupt communication between nerves and muscles. Myasthenia gravis is not very common; it's estimated that 14 to 20 out of 100,000 people in the U.S. have the disease. Symptoms of myasthenia gravis may come and go. The disease is incurable, but with the right treatment most patients get better.
