Is it possible that I have MG?

I have hand tremors, poor gait with falling, significant spasms in my hands and feet.  It gets easier if I can stand and flatten my feet or force my hand to flatten on a table. these incidents occur weekly, perhaps more often.  My hands tingle.  I also seem to have more of this at night.  I am having some cognitive issues with poor retrieval of names.  I also seem to process superficially, and retain limited information without details.  This is a new finding.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include neuro-muscular causes such as neuro-degenerative conditions, peripheral neuropathy, myopathies, stroke, a few metabolic conditions, micronutrient deficiencies, heavy metal poisoning etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist or a neurologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
