Hello @jenhuf1975 welcome to MayoClinicConnect . I’m glad you found us. This is definitely the place for people to share information and ideas and get help. No one here is a medical professional so we can’t diagnose or prescribe medications. But we all try to help.
You’ve certainly gone through many health problems over the years and you mentioned myasthenia gravis. Has a doctor properly diagnosed you with this? What has she said?

My mother-in-law is a myasthenia gravis patient and has had a thymectomy and is a diabetic.They also take drugs such as Immutil and Gravitor. They were once given immunoglobulin.
What is the opinion on giving covid vaccination in the current case of covid 19. Can immunity be obtained. Is there any risk in it?

no mention of a neuro opthamologist. I see a neuro opthamologist to diagnose myasthenia gravis, and a neurologist. I'd recommend a consult if you believe it's MG.

@jenhuf1975, I strongly recommend that you seek a second opinion from a large medical center. If you wish to request an appointment at Mayo Clinic, here is the information http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
