    This is a question you need to address to your wife's doctors. Myopathy is a blanket term covering a wide range of conditions, so it is impossible to do anything other than guess on these forums.

    flymo, thanks for your reply, saw the doctors and asked the question, we were now told its not a myopathy but the recent brain scan shows white patches on the brain this may be the cause of the loss of mobility, phisio may help
