Can anyone please tell me if this could be PMA. I have had severe fatigue that comes and goes and frequent twitching for the last few years. I also have an essential tremor in my right hand that gets much worse when I do a lot of physical activity. Now the scary part: I started to get depressions two years ago in the side of my right thumb and then it moved to the back of my hand where it appars the muscle is disappearing and the bone structure is becoming visible. The back of my wrist has a .75" diameter crater and the back of my hand has long depressions or valleys, between the bones that move the fingers, that are oriented in the same direction as my fingers. This has moved into my left hand but is now very pronounced on the right. I have been misdiagnosed with Parkinson's in 2004 and I saw an ALS specialist in 2006 who said it is not ALS either but offered no other advice (very rude doctor). My right hand today is becoming deformed looking and my fingers seem to like curling down and my wrist is much smaller as I can easily wrap my fingers of the opposing hand around and have some left over. Does this sound familiar with anyone? I have lost faith in the medical community and I have resorted to figuring this out on my own. I think I will have to wait for this to become so severe and obvious to a doctor before I can go back.
