In brief: Local rheumatolgist

Polymyositis is an autoimmune muscle disease that left untreated can cause severe muscle weakness and atrophy of skeletal and involuntary smooth muscles.
Treatment begins with cortisone and can advance to include oral immunosuppressive and newer intravenous immunosuppressive and biologic medicines all of which are availabe in the doctor's office or hospital. Physical therapy is critical.
