Feb'15 my husband started having fasciculation's. July'15 he noticed weakness in his left hand. Oct'15 he visited a neuromuscular dr at Cleveland Clinic who mentioned that my husband has more fasciculation's than he's seen in years. However a 3 hour EMG was clean and there were no noticeable clinical weakness or atrophy. The dr even said he was pleasantly surprised of the results of EMG. A few months ago he started to not be able to pull fingers together without struggling. He can't completely straighten out a couple fingers but can move them and hand feels weaker. He now has clinical weakness and atrophy in the left hand. He had an EMG the other day but it wasn't with a neuro dr. That dr said the EMG was abnormal and there was atrophy and weakness present. He couldn't give us reasoning said he had to review EMG numbers. This has been going on for a year now. No diagnosis very stressful and scary. What are the forums thoughts on this? Fasciculation's are mainly in upper limbs, chest. He really hasn't noticed weakness anywhere else other than left hand but thinks the right hand could be starting to mess up. In 2002 he did have his colon removed due to ulcerative colitis. Thanks for your response.
