Hi, guys. I was diagnosed with polymyositis few months ago. My usual symptoms were muscle weakness. However, since this morning, I began developing fever. I don’t know if this is related with my basic disease. I was hoping someone could help me here. All your help will be appreciated.

Hi. The main symptom for polymyositis is muscle weakness. However, there is a form known as infectious myositis. It is usually caused by flu. You can expect fever there. However, sometimes polymyositis can be misdiagnosed instead of trichinosis. Trichinosis is caused by a parasite called Trichinella. It also has similar symptoms like polymyositis and fever is included. People usually get it when eating infected meat. Is trichinosis excluded for your diagnosis 100%? I hope this helps.
