  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] Symptoms may include: Progressive muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy) Waddling way of walking Difficulty climbing stairs Difficulty rising from lying or sitting Repeated[cedars-sinai.edu] […] typically elicited by percussion of the thenar eminence with a tendon hammer—‘percussion myotonia’.[doi.org]
