Dear Sharon D. Devaull


Here is a link to more information about myositis, muscle inflammation, and mygalia, muscle pain that I hope will provide you with more information. In themselves, myositis  and mygalia do not describe a disease but refer to symptoms. A doctor should be able to find out the cause for them that can then be treated. I hope this helps.

It seems atrophy can be part of mygalia and myositis. It is about the muscles.

Please note that for people with late Alzheimer's who cannot walk and have to be confined in a wheelchair tend to develop atrophy in the legs/muscles and thus become further disabled. The rigidity is also shown in the body movements such as head turning, hands movements and etc.

This does not happen for earlier stage of dementia unless there is stroke and etc.
