Hi, my father started to feel pain in his muscles several years ago. Shortly after that he felt that he is losing his strength so we visited doctor. After examination and several tests my father was diagnosed by myopathy or more precise inclusion body myopathy. I would like to know something more about this disorder.

Hi, your father’s myopathy belongs to the group of inflammatory myopathies. I know this because my uncle had it too. Unfortunately this is progressive myopathy which affects muscles on the legs and arms. It usually makes these patients unable to walk. Some improvements were made with 7-day-taking of methotrexate.
