Re: my right sided muscles are getting smaller! WHY?
a CT wont show nerve issues like an MRI can.just where did the CT get done?c spine,thorasic?also,using a contrast medium during the MRI really helps to show all the things that just wont show up without it.i really would try and obtain that MRI from the c spine down thru your T spine at the very least.what you are describing really does sound like muscle atrophy,but it can be casued by many other things besides a nerve issue.an MRI with the contrast,i really think this would be your best bet at this point to really take the best overall look at your spine,down to the nerve and cord level.do you have any pain or other sensation that is a bit off the norm?once you obtain that MRI,you can also be referred for an EMG/NCS.this test will check the muscle and the nerves for possible nerve flow damage.seeing a neurologist may also help identify the problem too.please let me know what you find out,K? **
