Dr. Loki Skylizard
Surgery - Thoracic
In brief: Multiple
About 1/3 can see spontaneous remission, 1/3 stabilize on chronic medications, and 1/3 have progressive difficulties.
Chronic and/or longterm medications may aid but can have significant adverse impact on life and/or health. In appropriate candidates, thoracic surgery to remove thymus (thymectomy) can possibly cure: http://goo.Gl/3xxmd.

If Myasthenia Gravis, you should be fully evaluated and have your care coordinated by your family physician, neurologist, and additional referrals as appropriate.

In brief: Complex Q
See a neurolgist the treatment can be medical (steroids, plasma exchange other immunosuppressives anticholinesterases) or surgical (removal of the thymus).
