In brief: Muscle Disease

Myopathy is a general term meaning "muscle disease".
There are many different kinds such as muscular dystrophy, rhabdomyolysis, etc... They are usually associated with muscle dysfunction, atrphy, pain or cramping. A specific diagnosis requires a physical exam, testing and possible biopsy.
