here is my previous post

I would like to write that I have finally been diagnosed with polymyositis and maybe for someone my little journey will help in the diagnosis in general the determining factor was the presence of autoantibodies to overlap syndrome sclerodermia and poliomyositis +biopsy +new EMG. As I was told, the transformation of the disease of 2019 into polymyositis has passed.

now proximal arm strength is down to 7/10 and constant joint pain sorry to say it turned out not to be a cold, or depression but still, not as bad as it could have been😅

also I apologize for bothering all the members of this forum with my worries.
 
No bother; that's what we're here for.

Polymyositis is an inflammatory myopathy and very treatable. It is also possible to adapt your setup for maximum arm/hand support for continuing your art. You might have a look at something like the ErgoRest supports on Amazon if you work at a desk or table.

Thank you for sharing the outcome, with all best wishes.
 
Okay, got it. Thank you very much❤️
