Unclear by symptom: Losing strength is very concerning, diagnoses may include cord disease, neuropathy, central disease like MS, ulnar tunnel syndrome., myopathy but nothing benign. You may need an EMG and possibly muscle biopsy. See someone soon! A neurologist may be one stop shopping. Please get help and get well soon
