Sorry you are going through all of this, too. I'm not really sure about the muscle weakness. I mean, I'm a scrawny little thing to begin with, and I always attributed my lack of strenght to not getting my butt to the gym! I'm able to get through my 8 hour shifts, but I've noticed it's definitely harder to lift my patients (and I work with kids!) and I am absolutely drained when I get home. So yes, lol, I guess I am experiencing it. What exactly did the skin biopsy show/diagnose if you've already been diagnosed with the dermatomyositis for months now?
