1.) I know I have atrophy, but doc says absolutely NOT. What does this mean? The atrophy I have is due to some other then MND?

2.) I have significant atrophy but im really not weak at all and definitely not clinically weak. Again how is this possible?

Lou - have you done any PT? My doc prescribed physical therapy and they look at, touch and inspect my body more than any of the docs have. My PT did a full neuro exam and then measured my calves, biceps, etc......noting the atrophy that none of the docs saw! My hands have atrophy, but my doc said they were just "scrawny". Can you believe that one! Anyway, maybe some PT will help, or maybe you can get a cloth measuring tape and start noting for yourself if anything changes. Just a thought.
