I am posting this message because my 18 year old son has a muscle atrophy in his left thigh and the doctors don't know what is causing it. He has had 4 MRIs, and a nerve conduction study and the only thing they have said is that his femoral nerve is not functioning fully. The problem is that they have no idea why. He started back with the physical therapist today and is going to see the PT 3 days a week until it is time for his appointment with the neuromuscular specialist that we have to drive 6 hours to see. I don't mind the drive of course but it has become very frustrating that I have not had one doctor (neurologist and neurosurgeons) tell me anything except "I don't know." Literally!!! The nerosurgeon he was seeing even said he didn't think PT would do any good. I thought it would be better than not doing anything.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
