Introduction

Myopathy is an emerging group of diseases posing a grave challenge to the modern medical field, wherein the basic need of life- movement is restricted or affected fully. This leads to dependency on others for routine activities thereby inflicting a stigmatizing effect on the patient.

The term 'Myopathy' can reasonably be used to define any disease or syndrome in which the patient's signs/symptoms can be attributed to pathological, biochemical or electrophysiolo- gical changes which are occurring in the muscle fibres or in the musculointerstitial tissue. There is no evidence that the symp- toms are wholly secondary to the disordered functions of cen- tral or peripheral nervous system. In simple words the term 'myopathy' is used to cover all diseases which are considered to be due to primary abnormality of skeletal voluntary muscle fibers or the interstitial tissue between the fibres. This group of cases would include many diseases which appear to be geneti- cally determined as well as those which are inflammatory, meta- bolic, endocrine and drug/alcohol induced in nature.

Some of the prominent features are muscular wasting, de- generation, abnormal gait, difficulty in running or climbing stairs etc. A degree of disability usually persists in the victims (the Hallmark of myopathy).

As these are primarily voluntary muscle disorders, pro- gression of the muscle disease is variable. In some diseases progress is very slow, while in some others it is rapid. Some people maintain the state for their entire life, while others even- tually use a wheel chair or other mobility device. Usually the life span is unaffected in many myopathic disorders. However in congenital myotonic dystrophy some children die within a few hours of days of birth, due to problems with sucking, feed- ing and breathing.

If this entire clinical spectrum is viewed from the ayurvedic angle, a totally new perspective of understanding the 'Myopathy' may emerge. With this object in mind an effort is being made in the following few pages to:-

1. Collect the relevant information hidden in ayurvedic literature in a most cryptic form and

2. To build up a fairly reasonable perspective of ayurveda on myopathy in a pure scientific spirit.

In this work a two-fold approach is being followed, de- scriptive as well as analytical. While describing the modern medical point of view on myopthy, the descriptive form is adopted. However in framing the ayurvedic perspective, the analytical approach is preferred, since the subject matter is scat- tered and based on the following factors:-

1. Observation
2. Memory and
3. Research
4. Reasoning

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
