About 4 years ago I was showing symptoms of Myasthenia 
Gravis. My GP was fairly certain of his diagnosis but he 
sent me for tests just in case. I had various tests 
including some antibody test (which I can't remeber the 
name of) and an injection that immediately relieved the 
facial symptoms and made me feel quite well for a few 
seconds. The antibody test that was supposed to be a good 
method of diagnosis proved negative. 

My symptoms continued to get worse for a month or so but 
then I ran out of a tablet I was taking for a different 
problem and I went without them for a few days. The 
Myasthenia Gravis symptoms dissapeared within a week and 
they have not returned. The tablets were 5mg Oxybutynin 
hydrochloride. I no longer take the tablets.
