Myotonia Congenita is a rare genetic disorder in which abnormality of voluntary (skeletal) muscle fiber membranes causes an unusually exaggerated response to stimulation. Referred to as hyper excitability, people with this condition have difficulty relaxing certain muscles after contracting them. These people also experience abnormal enlargement of the muscles leading to a ‘body-builder’ like appearance.
HOW IS MYOTONIA CONGENITA DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis would be done by a Rheumatology expert who would do a few tests like X-ray and scans to check for muscle damage.
HOW IS MYOTONIA CONGENITA TREATED?
Some cases of myotonia congenita do not require treatment, or it is determined that the risks of the medication outweigh the benefits. If necessary, however, symptoms of the disorder may be relieved with quinine, phenytoin, carbamazepine, mexiletine and other anticonvulsant drugs. Physical therapy and other rehabilitative measures may also be used to help muscle function. Genetic counseling is advised in certain cases.
DID YOU KNOW?
For people with a history of this disease, genetic counselling is highly suggested. Doing so helps to minimise the risks of the child being affected by the same problem.
