... I believe I posted in another thread of yours, so I won't repeat all I said before but I did want to mention asking for a CK muscle enzyme test when you feel you are having a flare of muscle weakness.

... Lintek, is the rheum whose appt. you missed (car battery) part of a larger practice? In the metro practice I finally contacted, the lead doctor was booked solid for 4+ months, so I booked instead with another doctor in the practice, my theory being that a strong lead doctor would affiliate with "good" doctors.
