I can tell u this: if I take my anti-anxiety med, I notice a significant improvement. That tells me a lot.  Keep me posted, I'm sure you're fine. ;)

'dents' are not at all atrophy. I can't tell you about your butt. Not enough information.

Atrophy is overall decrease in size and nearly always accompanied by clinical weakness (by the time atrophy begins, 70% of the motor neurons are shot).

That's very odd. Mind giving your age/line of work? Did he check those areas with the EMG? Are these areas of atrophy 'new'?

If your EMG was completely normal I'm inclined to disagree with atrophy.

Hopefully ShawnW sees this post and can comment.

The only thing I can think of is a circulatory problem.

Maybe.

Even then I think an EMG would show something. At any rate, *** would have definitely been on an EMG if there is atrophy. So at least you're safe in that regard.

Jillayy: I'm so glad your last neuro exam was ok.  You're in my prayers--please keep us posted.  Our bodies often do strange things, and sometimes they resolve and we never figure out what caused it!  To me, it sounds like you have nerve impingement that it atrophying that muscle group; eg neurons are alive and well but not reaching that one area. You'd think an EMG would see this, but I've never had one and am uneducated about them. Did your MD acknowledge asymmetry? Or is this something only you see?  Hugs

Impingement, if the EMG was done in that area, would most certainly show up.
