    2. hi Katsim57. I feel your concern of trying to get to the bottom of things for a correct diagnosis. I too have neurology appointments but no diagnosis yet. My username her is TurningStones. I try to ask questions to Janice K. She and Zach have both been very helpful so I can at least look into the information they have suggested as well as listen to all yhe voices here of experience. Good luck on with neuro appointment as well and to getting answers and help!

  2. 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.
