In brief: Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease where our body makes antibodies against the acetylcholine receptor at our nerve endings to muscle, causing weakness and fatigue.
The disease usually first affects the muscles that move our eyes and our muscles of facial expression, even affecting swallowing and breathing. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/myasthenia_gravis/detail_myasthenia_gravis.htm
