PMR coming back?

@valb68 I have not taken a biologic, probably because it hasn't been needed for me. Shortly after my second round with PMR I started looking into lifestyle changes. I read a book by Dr. Terry Wahls – The Wahls Protocol. She has an amazing story about how diet helped her MS symptoms – https://terrywahls.com/about/about-terry-wahls/. So I have tried to focus on reducing or eliminating processed meats, sugar, fast food, and fried foods which I think helps with any autoimmune disease. Here's a link you might find helpful – What to eat if you have polymyalgia rheumatica: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321683

Have you tried making any lifestyle changes to see if it helps with the PMR?

I am currently in a program at the VA in Iowa City that was initiated because of Dr. Terry Wahls success story. I have read her book and attended one of her talks. Her success story is truly remarkable. I believe diet alone can be a powerful treatment but her discipline when it came to diet changes is hard for me to duplicate. I have changed my dietary ways but it still seems like a biologic has made a big difference..
