M.D. recently doubled Prednisone. Taking Mestinon daily x5 at even intervals. Some dyspnea. C-Pap at night. Morning headaches.
Have you had a recent EEG and an EMG? When was your last sleep test? Are you up to date on your last current Cat scan to check the enlargement of the thymus gland?
Now this is where I would start.
You mentioned you are on Prednisone, How long have you been on this medication? Why I ask, is that this is a steroid, for short term use.
"Initial symptoms of MG may include difficulty speaking (dysarthria), difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), drooping eyelids (ptosis), and double vision (diplopia). Patients often have nasal-sounding speech and weak neck muscles that give the head a tendency to fall forward or backward. These symptoms occur in about 90% of MG cases, are usually intermittent (i.e., come and go), and may disappear for weeks and then recur.
Generalized weakness often develops in the trunk, arms, and legs within a year of onset. Arm muscles usually are affected most severely. Muscle weakness tends to worsen as the day progresses, especially after prolonged activity."
I hope that some of these questions and your answers help with resolution to some of your symptoms.
