I write my thesis and I need a little help. I don't write a thesis in English. I'm using acronyms via glossary package as a template requires.

\newacronym{EM}{EM}{Electromagnetic} work perfectly, but \newacronym{Q}{$Q$}{Electric charge} don't work as I want to. At the end of the thesis is situated a list of acronyms. This list is like bold EM and explanantion. However, in the next line Q is in math mode as I need but it's not bold. Later, I'll use a greek symbols as well so I need to know how to add them as acronyms to the list and be a bold in the list and thin in normal text.

Thanks for help.

P.S. Sorry for bad English It's not my native language.
