Myasthenia Gravis and Cannabis: A recent patient's success story

I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in July 2012.  I was prescribed Prednisone and Mestinon.  After taking the prednisone for a few months, my mg related double vision went away, not to return, however my other MG symptoms continued to get worse over the next 7 years.  By 2019 I had tried "everything" with no lasting results.  I had to alter my lifestyle significantly by giving up my independence and going from a vibrant, active woman to one dependent on others for driving, shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry, personal care and more.  I often Googled MG cures, doctors, etc. with no new results, until I came across a video by Dr. Frankel talking about cannabis and MG.  In the video, he mentioned having great success with his MG patients, and even remission!  
 
After thoroughly investigating Dr. Frankel, I was completely comfortable making an appointment.  The person I spoke to on the phone put me at ease immediately.  The office staff is very helpful and if they can't answer your question, they will find out the answer and call you back. 
 
At my appointment I found Dr. Frankel to be friendly, very knowledgeable and easy to talk with.  I followed his recommendations and began taking CBD oil.  In a few weeks I noticed I was having less severe MG symptoms.  My first appointment had been at the end of August 2018.  By March of 2019 I was able to completely taper off Prednisone and Mestinon.  It's been 4 months now with no MG symptoms and no MG medication.  I would say that I am completely in remission!  Many thanks to Dr. Frankel who has compassion for his patients and is dedicated to finding a personalized protocol that is successful for each person.  And most of all thanks to God who sent Dr. Frankel to my rescue.
