The neurologist mentioned something about myopathy and ran the following tests:
I have multiple symptoms but I also have hypothyroidism. My thyroid tests are now and have been great for the past 2 years. I was recently tested and they are still good.
muscle aches, muscle twitching, Fatigue, weakness worsened by exercise, clumsy, hard to pick up small things. (Like coins on a table or separating papers) I slur my words at times. A lot of these symptoms come and go but he exercise causing weakness and fatigue see to always be there.
I am also going to have an EMG, muscle mapping and he some other stuff but he was a bit hard to understand with his accent that I didn't quite catch the other tests.
Can anyone help me out with what he is looking for? I have not been diagnosed with anything. I have been on this forum before with my symptoms but this is my first neurologist I have seen. My symptoms have been going on for at least 5 years.
He also did a test where he held his finger up high and made me stare at it. It was SO HARD to keep my eyes up there. I just wanted to cry. What is that test for?
any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
