Thanks Lori! Yea, if I have learned anything, nothing in neurology follows a textbook!!! 🙂 Mine started with a “floppy” knee, then hips, theh hands, shoulders and face and tongue!! My lower extremities are almost all hip (I don’t notice the knee anymore) and my hands are pretty bothersome, but thats simply becuase I use them more I think… Anytime I try to use my shoulders they fatigue faster than my hands I think… Though after the IVIG I could hold my kids and shop/hang clothes again (i couldn’t do it last time I tried) ..It is interesting how this affects everyone so differently!
