why is it that when ever something upsets me that i instantly get facial weakmess? For example: I was on the phone talking to someone about a situation that made me mad and like right away as i am all hyped up about the situation my face started to feel like it was difficult for me to speak. I guess thats what I am trying to say.
I believe many people have trouble expressing themselves when they are angry, stressed or very upset. If the myasthenia gravis is affecting your speech much of the time, I would expect it to get worse when you're stressed. Hope this helps.
