Maybe the opposite?: Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease. In myasthenia gravis, your immune system produces antibodies that block your muscles' receptor sites for an acetylcholine, causing muscle weakness. The condition may cause weakness in your neck, arms and legs, but this usually happens along with muscle weakness and not the other way around.
