Communicating with Your Care Team is Key
You may be seeing a few different doctors and specialists, some of whom may have less experience in treating MG. Each time you visit a doctor, share your full health picture, including your medications and treatments. Your entire care team should know your health status. This helps ensure that you’re getting the best and most complete care.
It's important to keep close tabs on all of your medications. Make sure that your care team and pharmacist stay current on your changing list of medications. You may want to share with your care team if you are feeling better or worse after taking a medication. This information will help in determining the right care plan for you on your MG journey. It's even common to get a second opinion to help you feel comfortable with your diagnosis and treatment.
The bottom line: listen to your body. Don’t assume that a new symptom is directly related to MG. It may be related to another condition or a medication you are taking. Talk to your care team if you are not feeling well and schedule an appointment if you have new symptoms. Having as much information as possible about your symptoms, including when they arose and how long they last, can help you and your care team make management decisions.
