It took over five years to find out what I had. I was having double vision on the highway with my vision also not seeing clearly. I had seen many doctors with no results.One of the last major places that I was seen keep looking at my blood with no results. They finally told me I was imagining all this. On a sales trip to North C. I had a horrid trip back in the dark. Missed a turnoff and finally found a motel with a room at 3:00 am. While driving the overpass’s were stacked two high as well as the trucks. Wish that doctor could of been with me.
Finally another doctor placed an ice pack on my left eye which was drooping and figured I had MG. H sent me to a specializes at a large university. He discussed my case and then had me come back in one week. There where many doctors and nurse’s in the meeting at which point he injected a drug and then watched my eyes. He then confirmed I had MG.I walked out to where my wife was sitting and I was smiling. Shes asked, why are you smiling. My answer was because now I know what i have and we can try and fix it.
I now have Prism’s in both of my eye glass lens’s along with taking Mestinon. When I awake in the morning and head to work I can stand tall with a good stride walking to my vehicle in my remote garage. By noon if I took no rests I’m heading down hill with slouching and taking short steps. If I overworked on a project chewing of my lunch does not work sitting there-waiting for my strength to somewhat return so my jaw will function.
In the evening sitting in my recliner my left leg is twitching which is on going. also if i over work during the day my double vision try’s to come back in spurts.
