    Question Muscle Atrophy...

    I've ******d muscle atrophy...but so far I am not able to find what it feels like or what it looks like....only what the possible causes are. My right hand is much bonier than my left. It appears to have indentations where your hand connects to your wrist joint. It aches terribly after a work-out or if I play piano....During my work-out, I do not notice any loss of strength. It's afterwards when the pain settles in.....Right where it hurts however, is where the indentation is located. Is this the beginning of muscle atrophy? I understand what severe or later stages of atrophy is like...but what about when it first starts out?

    I've been dxed with fibro but I am being screened for MS...I've been sick for 4 years now and drs. aren't quite sure what ails me...I'm a 31 year old woman who is trying to find the answers out for herself. Please help me figure out why one hand has indentations and the other one doesn't....

    Hi kristinefibro. I know it is frustrating to be sick and not know why. Please see my post at [url][/url]

    If you think this may be a possibility and would like a doctor recommendation let me know.
