RA And Dermatomyositis

Hey, has anyone been diagnosed with RA and Dermatomatomyositis? I was diagnosed with RA in 2012 but have so many symptoms and doctors are not sure if it is MS or something that is overlapping my RA or what. So I have been looking up about dermatomyositis and wondered if anyone knows anything about this and if so can you tell me your symptoms that you are having? Thank you.

If you put dermomyosotis in the search box you'll find a post from a year ago that might help you feel not unique in this..

My sister has been diagnosed with a myosotis, most probably inclusion body myosotis rather than this one. However the definitive diagnosis needs a muscle biopsy and since there's no treatment she's decided not to bother. But suggests that closely linked as we have same parents (my other sister has another type of inflammatory arthritis). Her main symptom is muscle weakness and atrophy.


I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dermatomyositis, Lupus, Scleroderma, Sjogrens & Raynaulds. I suffered a serious flare up of my dermatomyositis in 2015 just after my dad passed away. It has affected my lungs now causing Interstitial Lung disease 😭


Oh no, I'm so sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry you have all of those things wrong with you. I will pray for you. Thank you for the information.
