What're the symptoms of Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic syndrome?
The symptoms of Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic syndrome include muscle weakness, a tingling sensation in the affected areas, fatigue, and dry mouth. The disease is characterized by muscle weakness and autonomic dysfunction. Weakness can spread to other skeletal muscles in a caudo-cranial order. In some patients this might lead to a need for artificial respiration. Ptosis and ophthalmoplegia can be present, but tend to be milder than in autoimmune myasthenia gravis. Autonomic dysfunction in this disorder is characterized by the presence of a dry mouth, dryness of the eyes, blurred vision, impotence, obstipation, impaired sweating, or orthostatic hypotension.
