Hi @felicia2, I'm not sure there are any direct connections between PMR and COVID although members have reported having a PMR flare up caused by a COVID infection and/or the vaccine. That's just my non medical opinion. My PMR has been in remission since 2018 and since then I've had 2 Pfizer COVID vaccines and one booster and also caught COVID which fortunately was mild. My PMR did not flare after having COVID so for me there was no connection.
I think the treatment for PMR would be the same regardless of how it started.
Has your doctor suggested or started a treatment? What is PAMF Arthritis?

Thanks for reply! My Doc says if long Covid has become Neuropathy there no meds available!
And I’m with top Palo Alto Med!
Glad to hear you have a good health care team. Neuropathy treatment depends a lot on symptoms. If you have pain, there are treatments for pain. If you have numbness, as far as I know there are no medications or drugs that can be used as a treatment. The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy has a lot of good information on living well with neuropathy including treatments here: https://www.foundationforpn.org/living-well/.
