- Lost a loved one
My mother's left arm and hand have really shrunk in the past month or so. She holds it across her as much as possible and if anyone touches it she cries. Is this normal for atrophy? We have tried to get her to go have an xray because she has fallen off and on for the past few months. She refuses. Her fingers on the left hand are curling but she won't wear a brace.
