I have had Ocular Myasthenia Gravis for 7 years. It affects the leftward movement of my right eye. Pyridstigmine (60mcg) has helped my eye symtems. I also have had asthma for 11 years. I am a male, 53, otherwise in very good health. Through the past several years I have episodes of a "heavy feeling" or a feeling of "pressure" on my chest and sometimes intermittent feelings of tightness in my lower throat. I had assumed all this time that this was related to the asthma although these feelings didn't necessarily effect my breathing. Or may be the sensations are even indigestion. Now as I read more about myasthenia gravis I wonder if it these symptoms could be related to it or to my thymus gland? Thank you.
