Our expert says:
Problem, the scariest thing that I can think of that may be the cause of your symptoms is Multiple Sclerosis. One would expect some or all of the following symptoms in a person with polymyositis: proximal muscle weakness or rash, muscle tenderness and pain (usually less dramatic than weakness), polyarthralgias, Raynaud's phenomenon, dysphagia, pulmonary disease, and constitutional complaints, notably fever, fatigue, and weight loss. Maybe the best would be to see a different neurologist for a second opinion just to make sure. Just get all the results from all your tests before you go. Good luck.
