Same diagnosis for me, but the meds (prednisone, methotrexate injection, IGIV) or the other means I used to try to overcome PM (physiotherapy, acupuncture, osteopathy and Traditional Chinese Medecine) took a couple of months to become effective. I am not back to my former shape but things are better.
TCM remedy is herbal (7 kinds of plants) in tablet form - it's called Dermatomyositis Remedy - I bought a 3-month supply < edited >
