Samantha Ruth Prabhu Diagnosed With a Rare Autoimmune Condition Myositis

Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu disclosed in a recent Instagram post that has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called myositis which leads to the weakening of muscles.

Sharing a picture of herself sitting on a couch with an IV drip connected to her wrist, Samantha Ruth Prabhupenned about ‘the seemingly unending challenges’ in her life. She wrote “Your response to the Yashodha Trailer was overwhelming. It is this love and connection that I share with all of you, that gives me the strength to deal with the seemingly unending challenges that life throws at me. A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. I am slowly realising that we don’t always need to put up a strong front. Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with. The doctors are confident that I will make a complete recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days…. physically and emotionally…. and even when it feels like I can’t handle one more day of this, somehow that moment passes. I guess it can only mean that I am one more day closer to recovery.”

What is myositis?

Myositis is a group of rare conditions which is characterised by aching, sore or weak muscles. It is caused due to a problem with the immune system, where it inaptly attacks healthy tissues.Myositis can be difficult to diagnose indeed though the symptoms may appear fleetly or gradationally over time.


A person experiencing this condition may retain muscle ache and soreness, trouble in ingesting, fatigue, and asperity in breathing. A person with myositis can fall or trip a lot or experience tiredness after even standing or waling.


Treatment of all kinds of myositis includes physiotherapy and exercise. This helps in reducing the swelling and restoring the muscle strength along with giving the person more energy.However, those experiencing severe symptoms of myositis should elude exercising during this period.
