It's hard to say without examining you.  I can't assess atrophy without seeing it.  But, what I am reading is much perceived stuff coupled with normal EMG.  You are not choking, just "hard to swallow".  You have had "weakness" resolve...and actually gained strength through exercise.  I suspect that you can take the bad stuff off the table.  Now if the butt and calf is true atrophy it makes me wonder a bit about a pinched nerve in the back.  The reflexes are normal.  Brisk is 3+ which is normal.  What makes reflexes abnormal is clonus and/or pathological reflexes.  Normally I am a 1+/2+ but when I am anxious I could kick a hole through a wall.  It means zip without the other stuff.  If it's atrophy caused by *** it would have shown up on an EMG.  I believe much of this is anxiety possibly coupled with a minor medical issue.  I just don't see *** here.

My dr appt was good. No further tests ordered. I never had emg on gluteal muscles but he said that could be caused by my disc herniations and spinal stenosis in lumbar region. He did say my left arm is smaller but i have no weakness. I know left arms are smaller when right dominant but my left arm was bigger due to me carrying my kids on that arm, but oh well he is a specialist. Luckily for me i can go to appt like this get an all clear and move on. If it still bothers me months from now ill get it checked but for now hooray.

I wasnt just worries about *** by the way. More like msa and pd because i also had a tremor he said was benign. But i did acquire tremor after being on a strong antibiotic

I even asked him. Even, since im hyper aware of my body, if i was in early stages of something would he be able to tell and he said yes. Because by the time you noticed something is up its already going to be able to be detected by dr

Well there you go.  You now have two opinions saying low back is the likely cause of the buttocks atrophy.  A pinched nerve is the most common reason for  true atrophy in a young healthy individual.  The rest of your symptoms sounded more like perceived stuff from an anxious mind unable to accept that she is well.  I mean this is all the guy does for a living.  He doesn't make a living by missing ***.

well see im a nursing student and im more on the what if side of anxiety. my anxiety was higher at first due to my hormones (i had just given birth) but when they went back to normal my rational mind knew i was ok. but just added a healthy side of what if into the mix. the dr was actually impressed i knew it was anxiety lol

Congrats Jilllayy.

Yours had me a little concerned. I'm very glad you're okay.

Just curious had you had any steroid injections in that cheek?  Or possibly recent weight loss?

She was pregnant.

Pregnancy can cause nerve impingement. Many people develop sciatic pain during pregnancy.

Doesn't really matter...can happen or not happen during weight loss.  Steroid injections and recent weight loss are two of the most common culprits.
