Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well the symptoms you mentioned are very much suggestive of the condition . Ruling this out needs few tests;
Muscle enzymes- CK and aldolase
Antibodies test esp Anti Mi-2 Ab and MSAs
Please let me know if you need any further help
Muscle enzymes and antibodies are blood tests while EMG is done by neurophysiologist.
Skin Biopsy needs a skin specialist.
For start get blood work done ,if thats abnormal only then you need to proceed further with EMG or biopsy.
I am not actually working in UK so cant really guide you about the lab. You will have to check from the local healthcare services about the availability of these tests.
I am sorry i am unable to make any calls at present, at job actually.
Let me know if you need more information.
Hope it helped.
Plz let me know if you have any further queries.
