Does clinical weakness start as just perceived weakness? I mean, you don't just wake up one day and are not able to lift something or use your arm or hand, right? Would it start as just "feeling" weak?

Even if you tell the dr you are weak, they say it's clinically weak that matters.
I kept telling the dr my muscles and strength are getting weaker, and he kept saying clinically you are not weak.
