You Deserve your Disability Benefits for Myotonic Myopathy


Myotonic myopathy is a variant of myotonic dystrophy that is medically known as myotonic dystrophy type 2. Unfortunately it is chronic in nature and is characterized by a variety of ailments including progressive muscle weakness, muscular contractions, clouding of the eye lens (known more commonly as a cataract), heart related abnormalities, balding and even infertility. Myotonic myopathy is considered to be genetic in nature and is caused by the mutation of a person’s genetic structure such that it is not uncommon for at least one of the parent’s of the affected to have the same disease.

Even though myotonic dystrophy is the most common form of muscular dystrophy affecting adults, myotonic myopathy affects only 2% of the world’s population. Alas there is no permanent cure to the spread of this disease. If you are affected by Myotonic myopathy then you should be prepared for a rigorous diagnosis since the condition has a diverse nature of the ailments associated with it. Don’t be alarmed though as the rigorous diagnosis is there to ensure that you get all round medical attention such that all the different problems – such as cataracts or cardiac conditions – are tackled by the appropriate medical professionals. That said, it is important to note that the progressive nature of this disease means your condition must be constantly monitored and therefore you should prepare yourself for regular check-ups!

Given all the problems then, there is no denying that your ability to live a normal life will be affected if you are diagnosed with Myotonic myopathy. Depending on the severity and onset of the condition tasks such as simply opening a jar or driving or participating in sports might have to be limited; if not completely avoided. Thus, there will be a huge impact on your personal and work related relationships.
