Although myasthenia gravis usually affects muscles that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, and swallowing are most frequently affected. The onset of the disorder may be sudden. Symptoms often are not immediately recognized as myasthenia gravis.
In most cases, the first noticeable symptom is weakness of the eye muscles. In others, difficulty in swallowing and slurred speech may be seen first. The degree of muscle weakness involved in myasthenia gravis varies, and may include those that control breathing. Symptoms, which vary in type and severity, may include a drooping of one or both eyelids (ptosis), blurred or double vision (diplopia) due to weakness of the muscles that control eye movements, unstable or waddling gait, weakness in arms, hands, fingers, legs, and neck, a change in facial expression, difficulty in swallowing and shortness of breath, and impaired speech (dysarthria).
Myasthenia, in new born babies, may occur due to transfer of immune proteins (antibodies) from a mother affected with myasthenia gravis. Generally, cases of neonatal myasthenia gravis are temporary. Other children develop myasthenia gravis indistinguishable from adults. Myasthenia gravis in juveniles is common. Myasthenia gravis is not directly inherited nor is it contagious.
Lambert Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) is a rare neuromuscular disorder that weakens and fatigues the body's voluntary muscles (those we can move at will). Unlike myasthenia gravis, it may also cause mild involvement of the autonomic nervous system, a part of the nervous system that is beyond the ability of the individual to control. Like MG, LEMS does not affect the heart or major organs unless there is an associated cancer.
LEMS can affect many muscles, but usually it causes weakness mostly in the upper legs and hips more than the upper arms and shoulders. These proximal muscles are more likely to fatigue with use, and muscle fatigue and sometimes stiffness may be more prominent than actual weakness. The legs are particularly affected. There may be difficulty getting out of a chair, going up stairs, running, or walking. Lifting and pushing may be difficult.
As with MG, LEMS may also affect muscles of the eyelids causing eyelid drooping (ptosis), and it occasionally affects muscles that move the eyes resulting in double vision (diplopia) — but these symptoms are usually mild. Occasionally, there is weakness in the face and sometimes in muscles that allow for chewing, swallowing, and breathing as may occur in MG. Involvement of the autonomic nervous system is most likely to cause a dry mouth due to decreased saliva, and sometimes erectile dysfunction occurs in men.
About half of those with LEMS have or will develop cancer, especially a lung cancer called small cell. Most of these individuals are smokers. The other half of LEMS patients, who tend to be younger, do not develop cancer.
