Hello,

As the medication, you are taking is good for controlling the pain and also for myosotis. The pain is arriving due to the weakness of the muscles and needs attention to have a sufficient amount of strength in it so the physiology can be maintained. Usually, in myosotis, there is inflammation of the muscles and needs a proper graded exercise plan which can help avoid the fatigue to set in faster and improve the overall physiology of the muscles.

I will advise taking exercise guidelines as a demo under a competitive neuro Physiotherapist so your bodily functions improve.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
