polymyositis hereditary??

I've been having some bizarre symptoms, mostly neurological, but some are muscular. I've had a number of tests and the only one abnormal is elevated ANA. MRI & EEG results are not back yet. My question is, my mother was diagnosed with polymyositis about 2 yrs ago and I'm wondering if anyone has noticed a hereditary factor?
