Myasthenia Gravis and CBD Oil

Myasthenia Gravis caused an enormous change in my life in 2008. Now, in 2019, I find the effects of using CBD Oil, to be making another change! Clearly, changes happening for the last seventeen months of having the CBD Oil are definitely for the better!

Since I discovered CBD Oil early in 2018 I have been learning about our endocannabinoid system! Surely, our endocannabinoid receptors work so well with products from the Cannabis Sativa Plant.

Double-Vision – What Did I Do?

Eleven years ago, I began living life with double-vision. There were no accidents with trauma to my head, and I didn’t think of a neurologic disorder. I just realized one day that I saw double.

As soon as possible, I saw my eyeglasses doctor, my optometrist. He told me my eyes have a ‘prism’, and he can put something in my new prescription glasses to fix it!

Our optician who usually makes my new glasses read my prescription and asks what was going on with me? Thankfully, we were friends, and he cared enough to ask!


When I answered I was seeing double, Sam gave me a doctor’s name and phone number and said think about calling and telling them you see double. I called, and when I said I saw double, they said my appointment would be a priority! It would be in two weeks! Great!

The new glasses came, and I quickly found that wearing them gave me a headache! I tried wearing them just a few hours a day, but I couldn’t without a great deal of pain.

Myasthenia Gravis – Diagnosis

Time to see the new eye doctor, an ophthalmologist, and they measured and tested my eyes in new ways! Extremely thorough! Dr. Werthmeyer is an energetic, enthusiastic, professional with just the right mix of humor and seriousness. As a result, he can give you the bad news when you have to hear it.

“Janice, I want you to visit another doctor, a neurologist, for your diagnosis,” he answered when I asked.

That’s when I became persistent for I needed answers! Dr. Werthmeyer said, “Your neurologist needs to examine you for symptoms, and do bloodwork and tests to diagnose and confirm. Have you ever heard of Myasthenia Gravis?”

MG – Neurologists – Diagnosis Confirmed

Five weeks later, I saw the first neurologist for the MG and it was confirmed. This is the beginning of many neurology visits and tests to come. It is now 2019, but this first neurologist gave me only two and a half years to live back in 2008. My prognosis was not good for my anxiety was high and I had a PTSD diagnosis. I had been on hydrocodone since 1990 for chronic pain.


There has been a definite change in the outcome predicted for a Myasthenia Gravis patient in 2008, and what is told to the patient today! Different types of MG ask for various treatment plans and medications today. These were not so much available in 2008.

I saw a new neurologist last week due to a change in insurance plans, and he seems to be most helpful. Of course, I have been with a second neurologist since 2009, and she has been undoubtedly beneficial to my care. Dr. O’Brien has had me on MG medications and IVIGs for several years, and I’m sure they’re saving my life!

An MG Newsletter

I found a newsletter,, that is full of articles of information written by medical professionals, MD patients, and MD Caregivers!

Reading, I found the National Institute of Health (NIH) had recently awarded the launch of a rare disease network called MGNet with $7.8 Million for the driving of research into Myasthenia Gravis. This effort will be led by experts from George Washington University, Yale University, and Duke University.

Myasthenia Gravis Today with CBD

I titled this post Myasthenia Gravis and CBD because, including the IVIG every three weeks, my medications for all my diseases and disorders, I find I receive help from CBD products. From the CBD Oil I take daily for anxiety and inflammation to the CBD Skin Care Products I use in my routine, CBD is a good part of my life.

Where Myasthenia Gravis and CBD are concerned, I know a woman with Myasthenia whose eyes are getting better with CBD! I have a great deal of hope because CBD is doing so much for me in my physical body already! I have been taking daily servings of CBD for about seventeen months, and I am well aware of good changes!

Thank you for reading with me today!

This is very nicely done. Good work!

  6. First off Janice I am sorry to hear about your Myasthenia Gravis but I am happy to hear that you are discovering the amazing health benefits of CBD Oil. I personally started taking CBD Oil a few years ago in 2015 to see how it would effect a neurological condition I have known as ET or Essential Tremors. It is a common movement disorder like early onset of Parkinson’s disease but not as bad or debilitating.

    After seeing how CBD Oil helped many people with epilepsy and other neurological brain disorders I wanted to try it for myself to see what it could do. It is natural and safe to take so I had no reservations in trying it. Though it didn’t get rid of my ET it did help and it did something else. It got rid of my chronic lower back pain and made me less stressed. The many documented uses of CBD is amazing!

    I too started learning about the endocannabinoid system and to simplify things what I became aware of is that CBD interacts with it and promotes homeostasis or balance within the body. When the body as a whole is in balance, the natural self-regulation and healing in the body can increase. I am a BIG fan of using CBD Hemp Oil and I highly recommend it to everyone I know. May you be blessed by its healing properties.

    1. Wow, Robert! This is a marvelous comment! You obviously are a CBD fan and user. The Essential Tremors can be upsetting and dishearting when they start! First, you don’t know what’s wrong, and it’s frightening. Second, there are no clear answers about what to do for it. Or is there now?
      I have spent the last year slowly learning more and more about our endocannabinoid receptors and how we interact with CBD!
      Thank you for such an informative comment, and for reading my post.
      God Bless and Good Luck! Janice 🤗🌾

  7. I know a friend who is also suffering from myasthenia and it pains me whenever I see her in so much pain. Her eyes seems to be very blurry and she sees things in twos without the aid of her glasses. I believe that your post here is very relevant and CBD is a very good helper to deal with the issue. I will need to share this post with her because it will help her as well.

    1. Greetings John, Thank you for reading my post and then taking your time to comment! I think you must be a kind soul to feel your friends pain like you do!❤
      Myasthenia used to be a rare form of MD but now more and more people are sick with it!
      Please tell her about CBD and tell her to keep up the good fight!
      God Bless and Good Luck! Janice 🤗🌾
