Myasthenia Gravis

Foot pain

04/04/2008

Question:

Hi. I have MG. I would like to know why I get frequent foot pain. Is it because I have MG? I am 55 years of age. I also get under arm pain, like shooting pain under my arm every now and then. Thanking you.

Answer:

Since myasthenia gravis is a neuromuscular disease, it is possible that the foot pain you are experiencing is related. That said it, is not a common reported symptom related to MG. It is equally possible that your foot pain is not related to MG and may be the result of another local condition. An examination by a foot care specialist would help to determine the cause of this pain and possible treatments.
