1 doctor agrees

In brief: Why do you ask?

What do you think you have? Myasthenia gravis? Mitochondria myopathy? Mcardle's? Periodic paralysis? Myotonia congenita? Lumping everything together as "muscle disease" and expecting any sort of unifying set of labs / tests is naive.
Start with your symptoms / signs and let a competent scientific physician rule the entities in or out until an explanation is found.
