Hi. My step mum was diagnosed with dermatomyositis about 4 weeks ago. She has servere muscle aches & pain. The hospital has now put her in an induced coma to stop that pain. Before this she couldnt even feed herself . Anyone got some advice on what we can do 2 help her? Lindy
So sorry to read about your mother's problems. Unfortunately, without performing an extensive Physical exam and an extensive medical history, it is impossible to offer you any meaningful advice unless I was there in person.
I hope that she will recover.
