What are the signs and symptoms of myositis?
usually ,effects are reversible
Thank you for posting the question.
I have gone through your medical history in detail.
First of all,myositis is not that common.Dermatomyositis and viral myositis are the commonest forms that are seen.
If diagnosed at an early stage (before the structural integrity of the muscles is disturbed),the changes of myositis are usually reversible and the muscle usually gets back to normal.
It can be effectively treated after checking the CPK levels in blood and muscle biopsy/histopathology.
Ezetimibe is quite effective with very good results and is being used more effectively recently.
Residual muscle damage occurs only when the diagnosis / commencement of treatment is late. Such kind of residual damage,once occured,is usually irreversible and difficult to heal completely with drug intervention.
I hope the answer was useful.
Feel free to ask me any follow up queries that you may have.
