In 1983 my husband was diagnosed as having dermatomyositis He was treated with steroids and azothyoprine. he is a doctor. he made a full recovery and has had no recurrence of the disease. In September 1999 our 29 year old daughter was diagnosed with the same syndrome. She is being treated with steroids and methotrexate and recently anti-malarials! She has not got any worse but is still fairly debilitaed although managing to work full time in a sedentary job. Any tips, hints, histories would be very welcome.
