    I messaged you so I know it’s the right Vicki. After my message it came up saying you are in the same Mito group :-)

    Muscle biopsy was mentioned if genetic testing doesnt bring a diagnose. I have many symptoms..I think weakness, Fatigue , and my Dysautonomia symptoms are my worse. I do have other issues with possible EDS, so I’m not sure what symptoms fit which issue.

    Hi vickie. I’m going to a university hospital also. I just did a genetic test for mitochondrial disease. I’ve had issues since 2006.
    How are you doing today? How is your progression? Has anything helped you?

    Hi Vicki.
    I tried to send you a PM but it seems you don’t have capabilities for me to do so. I am going through testing for mitochondrial and wondering if we can chat?

    Thank you for the answer...
    Unfortunatelly in my country there are no test for mito disease...... The doctor are telling me averytime- no als but obvious atrophy in bot hands and tongue. The whole process is symetrical and painfull which is like systemic disease...
    I will go to germany in June for more tests and i really hope for curable solution....
    The most strange thing is the muscle are shaking when stretching like whole body clonus and there movement is not smooth..... like brain signal interuption...
    Thank you agan!

    Hi Vicky:)
    Greetings from another part of the world.
    Can i ask you something - I have some kind of muscular disorder. My doctors cannot find what it is. I live in small country and there not so many cases of this - in general I have generalised muscle atrophy with blurry vision, swallowing dif., tongue atrophy and hypperrefleia.
    The docs are stumbled because for 2 years my Emg were clear, so they say no als but I have obvious atrophy.
    Can I ask you about you supplement regime ??
    Thank you very much
