Can myasthenia gravis make my eyelids droop?

ANSWER

Myasthenia gravis is when your immune system attacks and weakens the signal between your nerves and muscles by mistake. That includes the ones that control your eyelids, face, throat, and jaw. Droopy eyelids might get worse at night or when you’re tired. Drugs or surgery may help your muscles work better.
