Well, you HAVE to believe me.....my biopsy was positive for myopathy, but my EMG was clean. What more can be said, other than it doesn't always work the way your neuro wants!

When is your next visit-- and do think you should try to see Dr S--- I think that Dr T is a general Neurologist-- How confident are you in him-- and did he see any fasciculations and do a tounge EMG?

God bless you, annmarie. I am so confused. I will still be praying for you. If the emg turned out normal, how is this doc going to explain the atrophy? When did you first notice the atrophy in your hands? Am I confusing you with someone else? Again, God bless you, annmarie.

I recorded my fasciculations on my cell phone and have every intention of playing my jumping calves and ankles, as well as the soles of my feet, for my neuro. My next appt. at the clinic is Wednesday and I want her to see them so that she can understand what the heck it is like to have them. Give it a try, if you dare!
