Re: I was diagnosed with Polymyositis
Hope that some of the posters are still following this site. I was diag. with polymyositis in 1995. Was started on prednisone and immuran. Within 1 yr. of taking these drugs I was diagnosed with cancer of the endometrium. I had to have an immediate hyesterectomy. They said the cause of the cancer was immuran. I started taking methatrexate and it has helped. Since then my husband died and the stress had a direct effect on my health. Today still alone, and struggling, I am in a deep depression and have pain that is so severe some days that all I can do is go to bed. What I have noticed is the difference in weather effects the level of pain that I feel. Just asking if anyone else has had problems of depression with this illness.
