obetv, I have read that methotrexate is used to treat PMR, and I am going to ask my rheumatologist about using it.
During my researching of PMR, I came across a hospital in New York specializing in treatment of diseases such as PMR. They were telling patients about a new drug , Tocilizumab, which seems to be helpful in combating the effects of PMR. This is their description of their facility: "About HSS | Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is the world’s leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health. At its core is Hospital for Special Surgery, nationally ranked No. 1 in orthopedics (for the ninth consecutive year) and No. 3 in rheumatology by U.S.News & World Report (2018-2019)." They are located in NYC, and I am not interested in going to that city for treatment, but I am interested in the results of their research. I plan to ask my doctor about that drug as well.
