Does anyone here know about FSHD, a form of muscular dystrophy?  A former doctor in another state (before I moved) gave me a tentative diagnosis but I did not have a biopsy to confirm.  I am awaiting an appointment (need referral from my PCP) with a neurologist at my present location.  My bicep muscles are severely atrophied.  My husband is encouraging me to apply for SSD but I can't do that until I am diagnosed.  Any comments would be appreciated.  Thanks.

muscular dystrophy is quite different from multiple sclerosis. I hope you find someone who has some better information that we're likely to have here.
