just watching the FAST Stroke advert on tv tonight and realised the stroke symtoms are incredibly similar to MG. Drooping face, eyelids, mouth, slurred speech, weakness in arms, hands , difficultly in communicating..... especially in a myasthenic crisis when swallowing and breathing are compromised, and balance and communicaton are affected. I did read a stroke case report with the added presentation GCA symptoms, and extremely rarely MG symptoms .....
