Nerve pain and difficulty swallowing: I could really use some help
MG is myasthenia gravis, its an autoimmune disease that can weaken different muscles, including swallowing. I've had trouble swallowing with MG and it is scarey. http://www.myasthenia.org and http://www.myastheniagravis.org are 2 foundations out there with websites that describe the condition. its also described on mayo's website at https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/myasthenia-gravis/symptoms-causes/syc-20352036
it's possible to have trouble swallowing without droppy eyelids.
