leg muscles getting smaller

For about a year now i have seen my lower leg muscles getting smaller, specifically the calves. I can feel them twitch often and they feel weird/stuck when i walk. Some of my toes are also numb, as is my waist area. To test for muscle degeneration, I have had a lumbar puncture (to test spinal fluid) and my blood CK (creatine kinase) has also been checked. But the results were normal. Yet i can see the muscles getting smaller and smaller. Ive also had 2 mri scans, which looked normal. An EMG test showed some abnormality, but the neuro said it was old nerve root damage. Other symptoms ive had for about 6 years now are: small twitches all over my body, excercise intolerance. So far, no doctor or neurologist has any idea whats going on.

Can the muscles waste without it being visible in the tests that ive had?
Any ideas on what could be happening with me?

Anyone know what it could cause muscle loss without creatine kinase in the blood?
