In brief: Fatigable weakness
The hallmark of myasthenia is "fatigable weakness", meaning that muscles get weaker with prolonged use.
Typical symptoms include double vision, droopy eyelids, or weakness of the limbs, all worse with activity or at the end of the day. It can also cause difficulty speaking, swallowing, and breathing, which can be extremely dangerous.
