Default E-voc potential

Did anyone ever have an e-voc potential on their way to a MG diagnosis? Is it only used to diagnosis MS or are there abnormal result in MG too?

I did.. the results were normal in one eye and borderline in the other.. it appears I have had optic neuritis before in that eye as per the neuro opthamologist. I do not have a confirmed diagnosis of MG though... in diagnostic limbo.. I will be curious if there was a link!

Yes, I did, even though I don't have ptosis or anything like that, just blurred vision. The tests came back normal which was a great surprise to me as my vision was so blurred during the whole test (caused by sitting upright) that I couldn't even see properly what they wanted me to look at! I don't have a diagnosis either...

I am in the same situation. I am awaiting antibody test results. One eye was normal, the eye with ptosis is 1 point away from the abnormal range. Curious, though.

thanks
