Question: hi,
thanks for asking about me. I had appt with dr. Maselli at UCDavis for (another ) EMG. This one was much more thorough, then the next day met with Neuromuscular disease specialist. The answer is there is no answer. Neither one had ever seen anything like I have. No treatment was suggested. Then on Monday Dr. Masselli called and wants a muscle biopsy done so I have to make another trip there but if it gets some kind of answer that is okay.

Brief Answer:
Muscles biopsy is an important diagnostic test.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again and thanks for asking me directly.

A muscle biopsy could evaluate conditions such myopathies, or conditions that may affect muscles ( inflammatory, metabolic, distrophy ) and neuromuscular conditions.

So, I agree with this examination as an aid to achieve a correct diagnosis, but still think that a brain MRI is still necessary.

Hope you will find a favorable answer soon.

Feel free to discuss with us about your health issues.

Kind regards.

Brief Answer:
I think brain MRI is necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.

Since yours is not an easy case, examinations take a considerable place in achieving a correct diagnosis.

I think brain MRI is necessary in your case, even to exclude any brain condition that may cause your symptoms.

Hope I helped you so far.

Kind regards.

OK, I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when I was 19 and i m 39 now. They can t figure out what type I have after 5 muscle biopsies. The recently did an enzyme test on my CK levels and the doctor said that with a muscle disease they should be in the thousands to 10 thousands but they were only 200. I m the only person in my family to have this disease and usually muscular dystrophy is hereditary. Back when I was 12 I accidentally got shot by my brother with a pellet gun. The pellet went through my lung and into my liver. The pellet is still there and the pellet is lead. Could that pellet be causing my problems? I am wheelchair bound and my whole body is extremely weak. I can t remember things and I get sick ALL THE TIME.

A recent muscle biopsy has shown occasional atrophic fibre and occasional rounded Hypertrophic fibres, i have cleared levels of 300. I am housebound due to ME so not much activity, although I do have a two year old so i don't just sit down all day, could the muscle biopsy results be a early indication of muscle disease... Biopsy was clear for myositis and vasculitis
