Muscle wasting in my hand

Hi

Twenty years ago I was diagnosed with arachnoiditis, following two myelograms twenty years before then, despite having a known iodine allergy. Since then I have noticed a lot of muscle wasting in my left leg - the worse of the two, as well as loss of sensation and motor power. Recently I have noticed that the muscles in my left hand are also wasting. Two years ago I had a head and neck MRI, which showed calcified ligaments on the right side of my neck but not on the left, and no mention was made of seeing arachnoiditis on the scan. Would arachnoiditis show up on a standard MRI scan? Could the wasting be due to arachnoiditis in my neck? Or could it be due to an arthritic elbow on that arm?

Thanks for your help. Where I live you have to wait months to see a neurologist.
