Hello all. As a young adult about a decade ago when I learned about my family history with OPMD I decided to check with my doctor about getting tested. She admitting not knowing about OPMD but did some research and suggested a genetic test. The genetic test came back negative.
Fast forward to today. I have started exhibiting a pretty obvious sign of OPMD which is the weakness in my eyelid muscles. It has started bothering me enough that I’ve had some consultations for surgery. My aunt that has OPMD says the only way to be properly tested for it is with a muscle biopsy. She has a lot of “unique” medical options though so I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on that topic.
