      Periodically I check out the Myasthenia Gravis News page because many of their topics are pertinent to us with LEMS and vice versa. 

      I found this topic and thought it was interesting, so I wanted to share it with you all.

      The topic: 

      Research and understanding of the genetic components of MG are limited. New findings are revealing that MG has the potential to be passed down through generations of family. How these genes contribute to MG or predispose an individual to risk is still being studied. 

      So I want to ask our community if you have any family history of LEMS or family members that you believe could have had LEMS. 

      Currently, they are unsure if LEMS can be passed down through generations, although they have stated that myasthenia can present in a newborn temporarily after the birth. I will discuss that more in-depth next week with you all!

      My father had another neurological disorder – Charcott Marie Tooth disorder. It was disabling to the point he was confined to a wheelchair. We were estranged so I don’t have much detail of his illness.
