I am a German Born 75 year old white male experiencing undiagnosed slow progressive Muscle Loss starting 1989 (25 years ago). My first and only answer I received from a Internal Medical Doctor (Dr. Robert Wennik) in 1995, when I saw him about my Wobble in my Gait. This Doctor assessed my condition after performing Tests: Heavy Metal, Lyme, Pomp, and full Panels of LGMD plus any inflammatory Neuropathy, Muscle Biopsy, then later repeated in 2005 by INH Bethesda MD and 0211 Cleveland Clinic, all Tests came back NEGATIVE.

Otherwise healthy, taking no Medication, always been active, swimming daily three (3-+) hrs. in the ocean and two (2-+) hrs. tennis with other activities.

After a fall, due now to extreme weakness in my extremities, in June 2012, breaking my right Femur and Fractured the Knee, which I had replaced in 2002 . After six Months rehab, I was forced to use a wheelchair not able to stand or walk, not regaining my strength.

At this currant time my arms are the weakest not able to lift them, hand, fingers, wrist, also having weakness to grasp, hold onto, help from my other arm, I lift Arms onto table tops and other surfaces, anything higher is out of reach for me.

With great efforts, I Dress, Groom and Feed myself, including these and normal daily shores are becoming more difficult.

I am seeking other Individuals that have the same or related problems or Answers in the Medical Field or Private Arena.

Examined by NIH in Bethesda MD in 2011 all panels LGMD and others, Diagnoses could not be established. Including Three (3) Muscle Biopsies did not reveal any abnormalities. For those Individuals who like to know my complete Medical History Records, Please contact me via E-mail: preisewitz77@gmail.com.

Thank you, hoping to hear from any of you!

Best Regards,

Peter R.
