Myasthenia gravis is a treatable neuromuscular disorder that sometimes goes into remission, which is when the signs and symptoms of myasthenia gravis have disappeared. Symptoms, however, may return, or flare up, at any time.

If a flare-up occurs, your doctor may treat you with medication or IV immunoglobulin therapy.
