Myotonia congenita is a disorder that affects muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles). Beginning in childhood, people with this condition experience bouts of sustained muscle tensing (myotonia) that prevent muscles from relaxing normally. Although myotonia can affect any skeletal muscles, including muscles of the face and tongue, it occurs most often in the legs. Myotonia causes muscle stiffness that can interfere with movement. In some people the stiffness is very mild, while in other cases it may be severe enough to interfere with walking, running, and other activities of daily life.
HOW IS MYOTONIA CONGENITA DIAGNOSED?
A Homeopathic/Rheumatologist diagnoses Myotonia Congenita based upon a thorough clinical evaluation, detailed patient history and various specialized tests.
HOW IS MYOTONIA CONGENITA TREATED?
The treatment is directed towards the symptoms. Certain medications may be prescribed to help diminish muscle stiffness and other symptoms resulting from myotonia. Special exercises are recommended to relieve the stiffness of muscles and other symptoms associated with the condition.
DID YOU KNOW?
The two major types of myotonia congenita are known as Thomsen disease and Becker disease. These conditions are distinguished by the severity of their symptoms and their patterns of inheritance. Becker disease usually appears later in childhood than Thomsen disease and causes more severe muscle stiffness, particularly in males.
