I have recently been diagnosed with Dermatomyositis and Polymositis. After doing a lot of reading it looks like they are practically the same disease. My ANA levels were "astronomical" per the doctors explanation. I will be seeing him again on the 23rd and will be sure to ask for copies of the reports and will have numbers to share.
I am just looking for anyone who may be diagnosed with the same. All I know is the doctor told me it's rare and we found it while looking for something else, which I was negative for.
We are a Christian family and I am not offended by anyone speaking about their faith/beliefs whether or not they are believers. I do ask that, no matter the belief, you respect each other and myself in your responses. Thank you.
