dermatomyositis is an autoimune disease where your immune system turns on your body and fights your muscles until they deteriorate. you also have a rash on your knuckles eye lids knees elbows and back. i have suffered from this since i was 8 and i am now 25. there is still no cure only treatment of steroids if the muscle deterioration is bad enough. hope this helps.
