Myasthenia Gravis Foundation - MGFC - California

about

The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of California’s (MGFC) was founded in 1954. Its mission is to find a cure for MG by funding cutting edge research and providing services for MG patients through low cost (and, in some cases, free) MG Clinics, Drug Bank and patient support auxiliaries throughout California and Nevada, as well as medical education, information and referrals. What Is Myasthenia Gravis? Myasthenia Gravis is a neurological disorder resulting in fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups, such as those controlling the eyes, face, chewing, swallowing, and talking. Muscles that control breathing and movement of the arms and legs can also be affected. The weakness tends to increase with activity and improve with rest. For example, if you have MG, you may notice during a meal, your jaw muscles become tired and weak, interfering with your ability to chew food. After you have rested for a while, muscles may become strong again, allowing you to resume eating.
