Betahistine Myositis Causes and Reviews


Myositis means inflammation of the muscles that you use to move your body. An injury, infection, or autoimmune disease can cause it. Two specific kinds are polyMyositis and dermatoMyositis. PolyMyositis causes muscle weakness, usually in the muscles closest to the trunk of your body. DermatoMyositis causes muscle weakness, plus a skin rash.

Other symptoms of Myositis may include

  • Fatigue after walking or standing
  • Tripping or falling
  • Trouble swallowing or breathing

Doctors may use a physical exam, lab tests, imaging tests and a muscle biopsy to diagnose Myositis. There is no cure for these diseases, but you can treat the symptoms. PolyMyositis and dermatoMyositis are first treated with high doses of a corticosteroid. Other options include medications, physical therapy, exercise, heat therapy, assistive devices, and rest.

Sat, 21 Aug 2010

Everytime taken causes increased heart rate, resulting in difficulty sleeping. Also causes skin itching and bad headache behind eyes. I have persevered, though, taking the drug periodically, when my vertigo recurs.
