Does MCADD affect the small muscles in the chest wall, making it feel difficult to breathe but not affecting lung function?

Cathy,
Significant muscle weakness with MCAD is unusual but not impossible. It sounds like you need to have some additional formal evaluation including pulmonary function tests. That should help tell if there is muscle weakness. You should talk to your metabolic doc about being seen. Hope this helps. Dr. Vockley
