Simplifying Therapy for MyositisDiplomat supports patients with personalized care.
Myositis is also called inflammatory myopathy. It includes many different disorders that cause muscles to become inflamed. Usually these disorders start with larger muscles.
Although all the disorders are different, they are all chronic — meaning they last for a long time — and they each cause muscles to slowly get weaker.

What are the symptoms of myositis?
All types of myositis can cause muscle weakness. Different types of myositis also have their own unique symptoms.
- Polymyositis often causes muscle loss and trouble moving.
- Dermatomyositis often causes rashes.
- Inclusion body myositis (IBM) can cause weakness in the wrists, fingers, thighs, and feet.
- Juvenile myositis affects children and can cause muscles around joints to shorten permanently.
Myositis can cause other symptoms, too. If you have myositis, you might have a low level of constant muscle pain. You might feel fatigue from everyday activities — even standing in place for a long time. As myositis progresses, swallowing and even breathing can become a challenge.
