Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
skin rashes, dry skin,hair loss, increased appetite, low energy
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was diagnosed with MND IN 2012. Changed to Functional Disorder in 2013. Changed to Tardive Dystonia in 2014.
None of these diagnoses fit. I have had 2 EMG's of which I obtained a copy of the results ad. The first one does indicate MND, but there was no further deterioration. Therefore it was not MND.
after the 2nd EMG it was intimated that the test wS clear and therefore it was of a functional nature. I was sent for a second opinion by my Neurologist and was then told it was drug induced TD.
The copy of the results from this 2nd test was not clear but the Neurophysiologist reD it as to having MSA.
