My niece is 9 yrs old and one of her arms below the elbow was skinnier than the other. There was no difference in strength between both arms for a long time. Now it is moving upwards and the doctors have noticed a loss in strength also. They still dont know what it is. The nerves and blood supply are all perfect but the muscle is wasted. Can anybody give me any info?
