Curious about muscle tone...

About 3 years ago I had a consult doc tell me there is nothing the same about my right side as my left. He'd lift and drop my extremeties...poke about..but nothing visible to me, except the subjective feeling of right sided pain and weakness.
Recently, even a friend of mine a little freaked when saw my abdomen. Like the left side has shape and some tone.. looks normal...but right side bulges upward and waist area bulges outward.

I understand atrophy..but not like I use my left side of abdomen more than right. :)

So, I'm wondering if the spine messed up and most all pain on right side..if it also controls the tone..to a degree?

So I'm out of shape, but not my fault! :)
Just curious if anyone has a body respond that way.

Hope all are well and hanging in there! Thanks

    It's like..say Bell's Palsy and the involved nerves misbehaving and causes drooping.

    Doc said it is result of my strokes in combination with spinal issues.

    So, it to be expected. Again, normal. Thanks
