    Hi @hondon - & welcome to the community. We have one person that I am aware of who is waiting for testing for Myasthenia gravis (MG). I'm not sure if they're active  at the moment tho. If @Funboy1 is around he may get in touch.
    Meanwhile I wonder if you have looked at a MG support website. There is the following: https://www.myaware.org/
    Please look around the forum & join in with any discussions (there are links at the top of this page) as well as chat here any time. :)

    Hi hondon, I understand your concerns about being diagnosed with a rare condition. Hopefully you will garner more information here and from the doctors treating you. 
    Your post has brought back happy memories for me. In the late 1990s I worked briefly as a research assistant to Professor John Newsom Davis, who was a wonderful man and led research into Myasthenia Gravis in Oxford. I remember that some of the patients had their thymus glands removed but I don't know whether this procedure is still done. 
    I am assuming that you are now on medication?
    Wishing you all the best in managing your condition.
