Hello there,
I've seen a specialist several times about this problem after a few tests and MRI's, he believes its an inflammation in my shoulder causing the issue. This problem has been going on two years and is really frustrating, apparently I have to wait it out.
Here are the symptoms:
- Right hand muscle wasting (Visible)
- Right forearm muscle wasting (Visible)
- Substantially smaller grip strength on right side
- Shakes in right hand
- Poor lateral finger strength (Right hand)

If anyone has any I ideas they would be greatly appreciated!
