In the field of neuromuscular diseases, pain and its management remain imperfectly understood and described. We study 68 unselected, consecutive adult patients attending a multidisciplinary consultation for hereditary myopathy. Forty-six (67%) were suffering from chronic pain. Pain was assessed with self report questionnaire and a standardized clinical evaluation. Mean duration of the pain was 7.2+/-8.9 years, and multiple body sites were involved in 91% of cases. Usual pain intensity (Visual Analogue Scale 0-100) was moderate (39.5+/-26.2).

For 42 patients (91%) the principal cause of the pain was of muscular origin, with frequent features of myofascial pain syndromes (MPS, 50%) and fibromyalgia (FMS, 26%). Pain was the major complaint for 6.3% of the patients. Pain management was essentially based on physiotherapy. Only a minority of patients (38%) has an appropriate drug treatment. Common analgesics appeared to be very effective in these patients.
