Are you part of a national registry for your specific type of MD? I believe in the Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy Patients and Family Members Registry. I fill out yearly forms and up to date on new findings and research.
Do you have a rare form of MD but are not part of a national or international registry? I like the registry because I look back and see how much my body has changed and maybe find a specific connection to things about my MD.
I’m not sure if there is a national registry for Myofibrillar myopathy. I know it’s rare and I never see articles or information about it posted on the site. It’s kind of frustrating to have a type of MD that you can’t find any information on. All I get is from my neurologist. I guess I could ask him if there is a national registry. It would be nice to be able to get more information.
