Welcome @lg5309, I am kind of partial being a Mayo Clinic Rochester patient where my PMR was diagnosed by a rheumatologist. I've had two occurrences and my PMR is now in remission. All Mayo Clinic locations use the multidisciplinary approach - Mayo Clinic: multidisciplinary teamwork, physician-led governance, and patient-centered culture drive world-class health care: https://collections.nlm.nih.gov/catalog/nlm:nlmuid-101537958-pdf.

If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, you can contact one of the appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

There are many conditions that mimic PMR so I can understand wanting to get a comprehensive evaluation - Diseases that mimic polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR): https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/diseases-that-mimic-polymyalgia-rheumatica.

Have you been diagnosed with PMR but the treatment is not helping with your symptoms?

Yes. I can’t seem to taper down on the predisone. The lowest I can get to is 10mg. Mayo in Jacksonville told me that PMR is not something they treat or specialize is. I do live in Florida. I do see vasculitis centers in the United States. Just wanting to know who has the strongest department.
