Lost all my muscle mass, developed gyno, my skull got much bigger like acromegaly and my flaccid penis has shrunk--is this permanent from using fenugreek?

No: Fenugreek is an herb and not a toxin. You have hormone imbalance and need medical examination, laboratory studies of your chemistry and hormone levels, and probably a brain scan to look at the hormone regulating pituitary gland.

Yes I have a muscle disease,MG. But if exercise weakens our muscles is it true just laying or sitting around ALSOWeaken them?

You can exercise: Myasthenia Gravis tends to produce a change in the muscle which is very similar to atrophy. Regular, moderate exercise can combat atrophy.

The key is to do something both pleasant and not stressful which will help keep weight down and reaffirm the positive, emotional feelings you attain during exercise ...Read more

How do you prevent the muscle disease macrophagic myofasciitis?

How do you prevent the muscle disease macrophagic myofasciitis?

This is mysterious: This has been very hard to sort out. The disease is so rare (if it is even real), the described features of the disease vary from paper to paper (anything from a catastrophic illness to the normal harmless persistence of aluminum at an old injection site), and the anti-immunization militants have gotten involved. A toxic effect of a Chloroquine (known muscle poisons) seems most likely to me. ...Read more

Why do you ask?: What do you think you have? Myasthenia gravis? Mitochondria myopathy? Mcardle's? Periodic paralysis? Myotonia congenita?

I had normal CPK aldolase ESR repeatedly and other blood normal along with normal emg/ncv. Normal skin biopsy. Can you still have a muscle disease?

Difficult: This question (and the related one you asked) are very difficult because i don't have enough data. The short answer is 'yes, maybe', but normal CPK and aldolase rule out a lot of possible muscle diseases. You may need a spine MRI to evaluate possible spinal cord disorders, but your physicians (especially i hope a neurologist) can best judge the nature of your problem and how to investigate it. ...Read more
