I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with possible LGMD. I’m still undergoing tests, muscle biopsies, heart scans etc.
I was wondering if anyone else has been through this process and can offer support. At the moment, I’m currently struggling with what’s happening.
So any advice or past experience from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum Bradley. I am sure that we have a number of fellow LGMD people on the forum amd I am sure they will be in contact soon. In the meantime there is a contact group on Facebook you might look into.

I was diagnosed about 15-17 years ago of sorts. Been through just about everything so far. More than happy to talk or chat about it. I know it’s a year since you posted but here if you need an ear to bend!
All the best

Hello. I was diagnosed last year with lgmd2L. I was getting sore shoulders and hips but never had any signs of weakness. My cks where always very high, between 3 and 4000. Gps always said some people just have high cks and I never thought anything of it until I met with a rheumatologist because my shoulders were getting very sore who discussed it with a neurologist. I met her and all it took was to see my ck levels and my large calves! She just did the genetic test straight away and was right with her suspicion. By reading this forum I think I got quite lucky with such a quick diagnosis. It did come as quite a shock to me but it does get easier over time
Just a question if anyone knows the answer to and that is will my calves shrink at all?Ems15ParticipantPosts: 0Joined: 31/07/2018
