In this disorder, the muscles that are used for various kinds of movements and motions get severely affected. This may begin during one’s childhood and gradually progress to a stage where bouts of muscle tensing may be experienced. These bouts are known as myotonia. This causes muscle stiffness.
HOW IS PARAMYOTONIA CONGENITA DIAGNOSED?
It is diagnosed by an electromyographic (EMG) examination. During this test fine needles are inserted into the muscle and the muscle’s electrical signals are recorded. The muscle is chilled for this test, as chilling brings on the myotonia. Evidence of myotonia supports the diagnosis of PMC.
HOW IS PARAMYOTONIA CONGENITA TREATED?
Mexiletine has been found to be successful for treatment for muscle stiffness while some have found acetazolamide to be helpful as well. Avoidance of myotonia triggering events is also effective method of myotonia prevention.
DID YOU KNOW?
It has been seen that certain kinds of foods, especially watermelons and carrots are known to induce the symptoms of PC while other cases are linked with genetics.
