Anyone else out there suffering. I am a 48 year old female recently diagnosed. I have NO energy and wondering what treatments there are other than prednisone therapy.

Hi Kdupell,
I am sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis, but am happy that you found EmpowHER!

We do have a Community Group that you can join, if you would like to talk with other women who have been diagnosed with polymyositis: http://www.empowher.com/groups/Dealing-Polymyositis.

Since you asked about treatment options, have you talked with your doctor about types of exercises and/or physical therapy?
