Myasthenia Gravis Symptoms

I am searching for anyone who has MG and what their first symptoms were. I first had mostly numbness/tingling sensations in my legs starting in 8/12. I had other symptoms and went to Neuro and he thought I had MS but then later said no after all of my test were negative (blood, MRIs, EMG, EVP). Now my symptoms continue to be a blurry/filmy sensation in my eyes all the time and weak legs. Some days are better than others, but it's always there. Is this a definite sign of MG or could it be? I have an appt. with a specialist but not until Feb. 26, an appt. I made in Nov.! The wait is killing me. I'm 62 and have not felt normal in almost 6 months now. I hope someone on this board can give me some input on how they were diagnosed. Thank you

Re: Myasthenia Gravis Symptoms

How are you doing now? Have you been able to get any information? I am going to see a neromuscular neurologist in June and it is suspected I have MG. I was also diagnosed with MS, stroke, seizures and crazy. All where ruled out, but I grow weaker and more foggy everyday. I too, am at a lost. My sumptuous "present as a stroke" on the right side and has been pretty consistent for 6 weeks (however this has been going on and off for 2 years.
Symptoms:
On and off double or blurred vision. Considerable weakness in my arms and legs. I noticed yesterday that my left is beginning to be affected.

I wish you all the best and hope to you begin to get responses to your question! Thank you.
