gMG can disrupt many aspects of your daily life—physically, personally, and professionally. These symptoms may not always be easy to see, so over time, you may come to accept them as your new normal.
It is important to recognize what isn't normal and share how your condition is impacting your daily life. This should especially include simple activities (such as walking, chewing and swallowing) to major events (inability to work, do chores, or be with family).
Are you making modifications to make everyday tasks simpler?
While you may have to do some things differently while living with gMG, it is important to share with your doctor the modifications to your daily activities like grooming or cleaning. An example of a modification is using a hair dryer stand because your arms are weak.
Your doctor will also need to know if these modifications continue to change over time to identify if your gMG is uncontrolled.
