Hi all..I'm writing for a little bit of strength and advice from you... bring you up to speed..diagnosed with a monomelic atrophy in left hand a few weeks ago after hand has been slowly wasting since last autumn, though i'm worried the neuro suspects als....c.p.k.test was 240 and had one e.m.g.. he said he wasn't too great with them and sent me for another e.m.g. with a colleague in the city...wasn't good from what i gathered..both asked if legs were ok..they are..He didn't say much other than wait and see..legs are fine but this last week been getting nerve things in back...popping/boiling texture under skin below the shoulder blades.and underneath triceps.and to me looks different...i can see my ribs more at the back with a couple of mirrors..i didn't want to ask my wife to look...i'm scared stiff and don't want to scare her as well...we've only been married 8months..and now about to be referred for IVF...i can't burst her bubble so i'm on here instead..

Hi veggiepete
This looks like a double post. How about we stick to the one in DIHALS? You already have wonderful feedback there. It will be less confusing that way. Thanks and good luck to ya.
