After developing double vision, I was diagnosed in 1988 with Myasthenia Gravis. It was not just my vision. I was very fatigued most of the time. My neurologist in Austin sent me to Houston to see Neurologist Dr. Bernard Patton. Two weeks later I was having a thymectomy in Houston. I did not have a thymoma, but Dr. Patton put me on IVIG (immune gamma globulin by IV). I was getting this quite often and continued for about 10 years. Today, I am doing very well. If I pace myself, I am great. If not, I pay a price. I have to rest to overcome the fatigue. Stress is my enemy. Sometimes I have to rest for days to overcome the fatigue from having been under stress. The thing that I hate the most, is not being able to travel without getting tired. I am so thankful that I am doing as well as I am. God is good!!!
