About the Myositis Patient Video Support Session

This session is tailored to those diagnosed with, or suspected of having, Polymyositis, Dermatomyositis, Necrotizing Autoimmune Myopathy, Juvenile Myositis, and other unspecified or nonspecific idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (myositis).

In addition, we have a separate dedicated video support session for Inclusion Body Myositis patients.

Why do we host two patient sessions?

The needs of IBM patients vs. the other inflammatory myopathy patients tend to be different.

For IBM, there are currently no treatment options available. IBM patients will usually require a wheelchair or powerchair at some point as remission is currently not something many IBM patients will experience.

For those with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies other than IBM, discussion tends to focus around treatment, treatment side-effects, remission and flares, upcoming clinical trials for PM/DM, and other related experiences that are different for these types of myositis.

Both our IBM and our Myositis Patient video support sessions are non-medical, patient-led, open discussion sessions where you can share experiences, ask questions, compare notes, and make new friends.

Both sessions are held monthly. See the events page for scheduled sessions.

For some, this will be the first time ever seeing another myositis patient in person!
