Hi, I started seeing a rhumetalogist months ago for high CPK. My brother had the same problme. I have since had an MRI, muscle biopsy, EMG and various blood tests. I was referred to a doctor at George Washington University in DC and his suspicion is that I carry along with my brother a gene for a form of muscular dystrophy. He has ordered a blood test, though, to confirm it. Although he told me not to lose sleep over it, I am concerned. Anybody know what kind of muscular dystrophy he might be referring to. I do have some difficulty going up stairs but I do live on the bottom floor of a condo and don't do stairs much. I am having no pain. What am I "looking forward" to.
