What's New in Dermatomyositis

Just wondering why

I have read that dermatomyositis may be triggered by EBV. I was diagnosed with this over 20 yrs ago. I wonder why this illness in particular is linked to dermatomyositis?

Hi, my name is Tink4Neverland. I'm here because I have Fibro, RA, Systemic Lupus, and dermatomyositis. I was diagnosed almost 5 years ago and have never been in remission.
The more I learn, the more I think Fibro is the cause for most of my discomfort. I have read several things posted on Pinterest, and finally decided to join up!

Hi, my name is Chris_mom. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story.

My son was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis in April. He’s 33 and he now has a gtube and can no longer eat or drink anything! He’s very depressed and I’m just looking for help anywhere I can even if it’s just a prayer! Please I want my son to live and also be able to eat!!#MightyTogether
