Did you test positive for any MG antibodies?

AChR, MuSk, LRP4? Are you seronegative? Don't know or not sure? Share your experiences here.

  1. I have tested positive for achr n nerve conduction test ... M checking achr in every month n the results is still positive but decreased than before

    1. I've tested positive twice for AChR Binding Abs, AChR Blocking Abs, AChR Modulating Abs and Anti-Striation Abs. All of the results have been very high so far.

      1. Hello again, Doug! Appreciate you getting back to me. Goodness, you're managing a lot. What a year this must have been for you since (a correct, finally) diagnosis. I really hope the physical therapy helps with your bursitis. Please do keep us posted on your progress if you'd like!

    2. I don't test positive for MG through any of the current tests available! I have treatment refractory MG. The doctors all agree that I do have Myasthenia, it is just some form that they haven't seen before! The only positive test I had was a tensilon test way back in 1995. I have had a lot of success with Rituxan.

      1. I remember when I first went to the neurologist and they said I didn't have the typical myasthenia gravis, but had to run some extra blood tests. My husband was relieved, but I wasn't so sure because of my symptoms. Those tests felt like they took forever, and when the results came back, it was revealed that I had MuSK MG. Because of this, treatment has been trickier. However, Rituxan is known to be very effective for MuSK MG patients and I have to agree. I believe I am living in medical remission now.
