In brief: Most likely yes

While it depends on your level of mg and your specific job, generally people with mg continue to work.
They may require lighter duty as you will fatigue much faster. Continuing employment has demonstrated improved outcomes in patients with chronic neurologic illnesses. Speak with a physiatrist to talk about your disease, progression, and tips for work change. Hope this helps!
