Re: polymyositis ?CURE?

does your mother have any muscle damage from the disease. i have been dealing with this disease for over 5 years now and i have done everything the doctors told me to do. now i am at a point where i can't walk up a flight of stairs or walk for a short period of time, not to mention i still can't get out of a chair. if you don't mind me asking, what is the status of your mom's mobility.
