Let’s Talk About MG

MG causes muscle weakness that may not be obvious to those around you,
and it can be difficult to describe these unseen symptoms to others.

This may prevent you from getting the support you need from healthcare professionals, family and friends.

We’ve created guides that can help you start meaningful
conversations about your MG.
