Genetic Testing
 
Just had blood drawn for genetic testing, I know my Dr thinks I have Limb Girdle MD but will the test show if it's another type of MD, how extensive is this test?
I'm super nervous about the results, was misdiagnosed with Polymitositis for the last year till I went to the Mayo Clinic and got a muscle biopsy. Whatever type I have has progressed rapidly in the last couple of years and it hasn't been easy.

I would love to hear some of your stories and how your diagnosis has effected your life. I don't know anyone with MD and would really like to get some advice from others who are going through the same thing.
