The only caution I would give you is to watch closely for the symptoms of Giant Cell Arteritis. PMR by itself is not life threatening, but GCA is another story.

Excerpt from article below – "If you have polymyalgia rheumatica, you are at a higher risk of getting a condition called giant cell arteritis (GCA). This involves inflammation of the blood vessels called arteries. This needs urgent treatment as there's a risk of permanent loss of your eyesight or having a stroke with giant cell arteritis."

Yes I have read about that as a problem and that 15% of people with PMR can get it. Plus my doctor warned me about that oh, has he told me that if I do start getting headaches to notify him immediately and I'll probably have to go on Prednisone or something. In my life before this I never got headaches. Of course, that excludes the times when I was young and drank and had hangovers. But it's been many decades since that occurred.
