Muscle diseases
Myopathies are diseases of skeletal muscle which are not caused by nerve disorders. These diseases cause the skeletal or voluntary muscles to become weak or wasted. Myopathies are usually degenerative, but they are sometimes caused by drug side effects, chemical poisoning, or a chronic disorder of the immune system.

Chronic fatigue syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an illness characterized by prolonged, debilitating fatigue and multiple nonspecific symptoms such as headaches, recurrent sore throats, muscle and joint pains, memory and concentration difficulties. Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue of six months.

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating chronic illness characterized by diffuse pain, fatigue, and a wide range of other symptoms. It is a syndrome, not a disease. It is not contagious, and is probably genetic. It affects more women than men, mostly between ages 20 and 50. It is seen in 3-10% of the general population.

Muscular dystrophy
Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a broad term that describes a genetic (inherited) disorder of the muscles. Muscular dystrophy causes the muscles in the body to become very weak. The muscles break down and are replaced with fatty deposits over time. Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder that is characterized by muscle wasting and weakening.

Dermatomyositis is one of a group of inflammatory muscle diseases. It is a subtype of inflammatory muscle disease. Dermatomyositis may affect people of any race, age or sex, although it is twice as common in women than in men. Dermatomyositis belongs to a group of conditions called inflammatory myopathies.

Polymyositis is a systemic connective tissue disorder characterized by inflammatory and degenerative changes in the muscles, leading to symmetric weakness and some degree of muscle atrophy. Polymyositis is slightly more common in females. It affects all age groups, although its onset is most common in middle childhood and in the twenties.

Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers resulting in the release of muscle fiber contents into the circulation. Some of these are toxic to the kidney and frequenty result in kidney damage. Many clinical features of rhabdomyolysis are nonspecific, and the course of the syndrome varies depending on the underlying condition.

Compartment syndrome
Compartment syndrome involves the compression of nerves and blood vessels within an enclosed space. Compartment syndrome is a condition in which there is swelling and an increase in pressure within a limited space (a compartment)http://bone-muscle.health-cares.net/muscle-diseases.php that presses on and compromises blood vessels, nerves, and/or tendons that run through that compartment.  (+ info)
