How long does it take for muscle to atrophy if you are bedridden?

Age and disease

Muscle
It depends on the age of the patient and the underlying condition. Elderly are affected more severely. As a rough guide an elderly person loses about 10% of muscle function per day of immobility. If there are other factors, e.g., fever, nutritional impairment, trauma, and some medications, e.g., steroids, the muscle atrophy is worsened.

Get a referral to a cardiologist. Depends what blood test done and for what reason. Make sure do liver and kidney function test If under stress talk to your friend. If lack of sleep get chamomile tea, or yogurt helps you to sleep.

What is the most common muscle disorder?

Sprains

Muscular_dystrophy
Sprains/strains is the most common muscle problem. If you are looking specifically for a disease, then muscular dystrophy would be my top choice. Depending on how you want to classify fibromyalgia, it could rank as the top disease.

Metabolic delay

Premature_delivery
Preemies have to "catch up" metabolically speaking. I suggest that you look for a doc registered with the American College for Advancment in Medicine (ACAM)

If my 2 year has increased muscle spascity in one leg does that mean she could have a muscle disorder?

Hard to say

97133680
Spasticity usually relates to lack of coordinated nerve messages from the brain and may indicate a subtle brain injury often called cerebral palsy in its more dramatic forms. A muscle disorder implies selective abnormality in the muscle, usually producing a weakness.An exam and testing if indicated can separate the likely cause.It is time for a discussion with your doc.

Does my 14 month old have a muscle disorder if he shivers sometimes?

Not specificly

Muscle
Some kids shiver as a normal event. There is also a transitional process some call shudder attacks that are brief shiver like events that last seconds while a kid is apparently awake & not bothered by the activity.Although any child demonstrating these events in childhood may have problems,there is no specific link.
