Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • How can i stop and reverse kenacort caused muscle wasting / atrophy? (1 answer)
    I had swelling in my knee in April 2012 from cycling. I went to a doctor who injected Kenacort into my knee to reduce the swelling. In July 2012, I had hypopigmentation of my skin on and around the knee (loss of color). From around August 2012 until now (June 2013) I have been experiencing muscle atrophy / wasting around my knee.

    I also have indented white lines coming out from my knee that I suspect are a combination of hypopigmentation and fat atrophy / wasting.

    I need help please to know what I can do to stop the atrophy, try and restore my muscle and (if possible), my pigmentation.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • my muscle harm is dead


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • 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 medium, done on the entire upper body part including shoulders and both hands, found nothing. Spinal fluid showed nothing. EMG found denervation in my right hand. Vitamin B12 was at 352 ng/l. Was that too low? The doctors didn't bother with that and suspected plexus neuritis or neuropathy.

    I have no family history of neurological diseases. My symptoms are very troubling and progressing now, involving my left hand also. I can't lift my right hand and my both thumbs at all and it has progressed, there is a big muscle atrophy in my left hand now also.

    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.

    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.

    The muscles in my both hands are severely wasted by now.


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Muscle wasting noticable in arms and face after 6 years on Humira but I am also aging and protective of joints in shoulders and elbows so haave had to decrease exercise.
