The entire right side of my body is smaller than the other

Resolved Question:

The entire right side of my body is smaller than the other side why is this. I have done strenght test with multiple doctors and because my strenght is equal it is not viewed as a problem. Is there any thing I can do or can you recommend a type of specialist I can see.

Anthony Bray, MD : Hello!
Anthony Bray, MD : I would guess from your question that this has been lifelong .... Is this correct??
Anthony Bray, MD : It sounds to me to be a trait that you developed as a result if your genetics and development in your growth ...
Anthony Bray, MD : It sounds to be a problem that you have noticed but does not affect your function... It would not seem to be any medical condition that would have any fix or remedy...
Anthony Bray, MD : you may ask internal medicine doctor or neurologist for further exam and opinion as this may provide you with further information ...
Anthony Bray, MD : it does not sound to me that you have any disease process that should cause you worry or concern however...
Anthony Bray, MD : I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have further questions or discussion and I will be happy to get back with you.
Anthony Bray, MD : If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.

Customer:

I don't honestly remember if is has been lifelong, but I started falling in 2008, and continue to use total functionality in my right hand ( no dexterity control) pencils or objects fall out of my hand. I saw a nerologist in 2009 and nothing conclusive. You suggested to different types of doctors would you recommend one disipline over the other.

Anthony Bray, MD : You seem to have question of functionality in your last statement so with that I would recommend 2nd opinion by another neurologist...
Anthony Bray, MD : I think that if you had loos if muscle mass as a symptom that has not been lifelong that evaluation for neuromuscular disease would be appropriate . If there is any question of weakness or less coordination to one side then neurologist would seem best specialist to evaluate this further....
Anthony Bray, MD : I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions/ discussion/ details/--- I will be happy to get back with you!!
Anthony Bray, MD : Best regards,
