MG is kind of chronic disease, which may recur and aggravate because of various factors.

3. Suggestions on daily life-nursing: Patients should prevent catching a cold, which may lead to infection of upper respiratory tract, and result in myasthenic crisis. Enough rest is good for recovery of tired muscle, so we should ensure patients less intense sports and tiring activities. Effective treatment not only needs rational use of drugs, but also needs patients to have good mood, positive attitude.
Besides, patients should take notice of drug taboos, and take medicines under doctors’ guidance.
