What is inclusion body myositis

  1. 1. What is Inclusion Body Myositis?Source:http://feelgoodtime.net/what-is-inclusion-body-myosit
  2. 2. • Inclusion Body Myositis is a disease that involves inflammation of muscles at the level of one or more muscles. Weakness, swelling and pain are the most common symptoms of myositis. It is common occurrence in people after a long time suddenly loaded muscles followed by periods of high inflammation, including pain. It may take several days to treat inclusion body myositis.
  3. 3. Inclusion Body Myositis Causes• Inclusion body myositis is caused by conditions that lead to the inflammation process in the muscles. These are:• injury• infection,• autoimmune diseases• undesirable properties of drugs• Diseases involving inflammatory changes can affect the muscles causing myositis. Many of these diseases are agroup of autoimmune diseases, when the body produces harmful antibodies that destroy body tissue.Inflammatory diseases that could potentially cause serious forms of myositis are dermatomyositis,polymyositis. Milder forms of myositis caused by systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, rheumatoidarthritis. These diseases are often the most serious causes of myositis and require prolongedtreatment. Treatment depends on the cause of inclusion body myositis.• Inclusion Body Myositis caused by infection• iral infections are the most common infections that cause myositis. Viruses or bacteria can directly invade tissue oremit substances that deplete the muscle fibers. Colds or influenza viruses as well as HIV can cause myositis.• Inclusion Body Myositis caused by drugs• Various drugs can cause temporary muscle damage in the form of myositis. Myositis sometimes be replaced withmyopathy, due to inflammation of the muscles is often not identified at the time.• It can occur shortly after the use of a particular drug or a few months or years of drug use. Myositis caused bydrugs is rarely a cause for greater concern. Substances that cause myositis as statins, colchicine, alpha-interferon,cocaine.• Inclusion Body Myositis caused by injury• Overdosage exercise in muscles that have not been sufficiently trained leads to pain, swelling and weakness,lasting from a few hours to several days after training. Inclusion body myositis symptoms that occur after exercisealmost always go away fully after rest and recovery.• The main symptom of inclusion body myositis is muscle weakness. Weakness may be noticeable and can bedetected only by testing. Muscle pain-myalgia may, but does not need to be present. Dermatomyositis,polymyositis, and other forms of inflammatory myositis tend to create a weakness that may progress slowly forweeks or months. Weakness affects the large muscle groups, including the muscles of the neck, shoulders, hipsand back. Weakness caused by myositis may lead to the fact that body is not able to maintain a balance betweenmuscle power, which lead to falls.
  4. 4. Inclusion Body Myositis Treatment• Doctor receives information of subjective character of the patient,which describes muscle weakness, any pain or other symptoms ofmyositis. Then, blood tests are performed, which show anincreased presence of muscle enzymes such as creatine. One candetermine the presence of abnormal antibodies that identify anautoimmune inflammatory disease. Inflammatory diseases thatcause myositis may require treatment with drugs which suppressthe negative function of the immune system (autoimmunity). Toincrease muscle ability we recommendcordycepssinensis and glucuronolactone. Inclusion body myositis caused byinfection, which is a consequence of the virus does not require anyspecial treatment. Myositis caused by bacteria rarely occurs andrequires intravenous antibiotic treatment in order to preventfurther spread of muscle damage. Inclusion body myositistreatment on time is very important for your muscles.
