Anyone out there diagnosed with distal myopathy (DM)? There are many types of DM. I have been diagnosed with DM, it’s genetic, and the specific type I have is unknown (i.e. they don’t know which of my genes are defective). I have been told that it’s “slowly progressive.” I would like to communicate with others who have this condition. My hands and feet are getting weaker & arms and legs are painful. Exercising in a warm pool helps a lot and also mild yoga and stretching. I would like to know what helps you and how you are progressing.
