My husband is waiting to see a muscular dystrophy Dr to see if he has Muscular Dystrophy. His appointment isn t until August 2011. He had an EMG done and the report says it raises the possibilty of scapuloperoneal muscular dystrophy. What exactly is that? Says: the winging of the back musculature in combination with tibial peroneal weakness and abnormal EMG findings raise the posiibilty of scapuloperoneal muscular dystrophy. I can t find it online. My husband s left foot is turning outward at about 9-10 oclock and is having pain. His diagnostic on the EMG says: slightly reduced SNAP amplitudes in the left sural with normal velocities, low-normal CNAP amplitudes of the peroneal motor nerve, and scattered fibrillation potentials and positive sharp waves in the left tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum brevis muscles with some CRD S. My husband has hammer toes and 15 years ago had surgery for them.He says he has features of Charcot-Marie Tooth. He says the foot is collapsing into the significant pes planovalgus despite having a very big cavus foot. He has clawing down through his toes as an accesory foot stabilizer. He says the patient does have underdeveloped musculature of the upper extremities. The patient has bilateral high arched feet with valgus deviated toes. We have to wait until August to see a Muscular Dystrophy Dr and it is driving me nuts not knowing what is happening with him. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executiveA 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?

I take Venlafaxine (300mg), Atenolol (50mg), and Mobic (15mg) daily. I have been taking the Venlafaxine and Atenolol for months, and the Mobic for 2 weeks. I notice no interaction problems, but dugs.com says that Venlafaxine and Mobic can cause upper GI bleeding and Atenol and Mobic cause increased potassium levels. I take Atenolol primarily as a headache deterrent. I used to get headaches almost daily, but none since I started taking it. The Mobic is for my back (a pinched nerve) and so far Mobic has worked great for that.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)
