Wink Re: Have I got MD?

LGMD is a very slowly progressive, it's very difficult to even noticed when you have not been able to run or climb stairs any more. The progression in most forms of adult onset muscular dystrophy is very slow in fact, the later the onset, the slower the progression. On my example I was always not good at running but still could do it for the first 20 years. By the age of about 25 running ability was gone. Then climbing stairs starts to be a problem but I can still do it with little support of my hands. By the age of 26 I was diagnosed with lgmd. I'm nearly 30 now.

I don't know what have you got but it doesn't seem like md at all. More like Polio or something like that but that's just a blind guess. Go to your doctors, it took me 3 years to get diagnosis.
Hope it helps.
