dermamyositis... Please give me some good news.
Help, my stepmom has just been diagnosed with DM. Syptoms started with fatigue & purple around her eyes. She has had muscle biopsy. She is on 40mg of prednisone & azathioprine(which they just started her on last week. She is exhausted all the time, can no longer speak. Also when she does anything at all her heart rate races up to 170+. I would love to be able to hear of success stories with DM. My father is at his wits end, My stepmom is only 59 yrs old. & always been very healthy & active. Please tell me what I can do ?
