Treatment of Myositis And Myopathy
Dr. Yogesh Singh provides the Treatment of Myositis in Bangalore. He has great expertise in the field of rheumatology diseases. Let’s discuss Myositis & Myopathy in detail.
What is Myositis?
Myositis is the inflammation of the muscles which is to be used to move your body. An injury, infection, or autoimmune disease can cause it. Two specific kinds are polymyositis and dermatomyositis. Polymyositis causes muscle weakness, usually in the muscles closest to the trunk of your body.
Myositis means the inflammation in muscles. Weakness, swelling, and pain are the most common symptoms of myositis. Myositis causes include infection injury, autoimmune conditions, and drug side effects. Treatment of myositis varies according to the cause or we can say according to the patient’s conditions’
Typically, treatment begins with the high doses of corticosteroids to quickly reduce the inflammation. However, myositis varies from person to person, everyone observes different types of things in myositis, so it is important to treat the underlying cause of the disease, be it antibiotics for infections or disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) for autoimmune disease.
Cure for Myositis
As of now, there is no cure for myositis. However, management of the disease is critical in order to reduce inflammation caused by myositis and to prevent muscle weakness from progressing. Further, your doctor will recommend lifestyle changes so you can restore your strength.
If you took a proper diet and take more fruits in your daily life then most of the myositis problem is resolved.
What is Myopathy?
- Myopathy is the disease of muscle in which the muscle fibers do not function properly. This results in muscular weakness. Simply we can say Myopathy is muscle disease, where the primary defect is within the muscle.
- The rheumatologist evaluates the patients of myalgia There are very few patients who are suffering from myalgia problem, muscle cramping, and fatigue. Because these symptoms may be nonspecific and lack any clear temporal or anatomic pattern, their workup may entail costly and uninformative tests.
When similar symptoms emerge during or following physical exertion, a metabolic myopathy should be suspected. Recurrent myoglobinuria, exercise intolerance, and mild fixed proximal muscle weakness are also frequently encountered in metabolic myopathies.
- Although inflammatory myopathies may present in a similar fashion, such a pattern should prompt a thorough evaluation for an underlying metabolic myopathy. This review will discuss an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of several of the more common metabolic myopathies
- The metabolic myopathies are a heterogeneous group of disorders that share the common feature of inadequate production of cellular energy in the muscle.
- Muscle energy metabolism is beyond the scope of this review, but a brief consideration of the pertinent metabolic pathways is used to better understand this group of disorders. Under normal circumstances, energy for skeletal muscle function in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is derived from muscle glycogen, blood glucose, and free fatty acids.
