Hi, my right hand started showing problems in late 2005, I was losing mobility (at the age of 30 back then), especially in my thumb, with pronounced fasciculations, without any injury.
I was referred to a neurological clinic. There I did all the neurological exams. MRI both with and without contrast agent, done on the entire upper body part including shoulders and both hands, found nothing. Spinal fluid showed nothing. Blood rsults were normal. EMG found denervation in my right hand.
I have no family history of neurological diseases. My symptoms are very troubling and progressing now, now also involving my left hand. I'm loosing functionalty in it.
I have tried physiotherapy, this year from January till June, but my hands are getting worse. I also have pain in the area from my hands up to my elbows.
I have no symptoms in my feet, or anywhere else, but the neurologist I've seen recently ordered EMG of both hands and feet, which I'm going to do tomorrow.
I thought it could be arthritis, so I did an X-ray of both hands only 2 weeks ago. The orthopaedist I saw told me both were completely normal; not a sign of arthritis.
What could that be?
