Diana, can we read of illness history and journey to recovery somewhere? This is terrific information!! Kitt, I am more inclined to think that mestinon doesn't help me. I am in the UK and as the test was positive the doctors explored the possibility I had Myasthenia Gravis, turned out they eventually decided I did not have MG but none of the specialists I saw could explain my 3 positive tests of Acetycholine receptor antibodies.
Thank you for the post. Wondering what your experience is with this drug.

Desmopressin increases free water reuptake in the kidneys — a way of increasing circulating blood volume similar to Florinef except that Florinef works by decreasing sodium excretion which results in water retention as well.
With all the meds I'm on my baseline HR is still elevated at times, ans I still get jumps of 30 bpm and even more when I get up, not to mention that i am far from functional. I promise still to give a full account for the website of what has worked for me, when I finally reach a stable place and know for sure what got me there.
Mestinon is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor say that fast three times…. Thanks a lot for getting back to me Kitt. Belinda, tVNS means transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulator and it works by applying electrical stimulation in a part of the ear with something that looks like an ear bud: It looks like its pretty cheap now.
