May 6, 2018 · PMR Anyone? in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

HI! I don't think they checked me for that since i went to the urgent care just 5 days after I arrived in AZ and the symptoms started as we were driving down there from MN

Thank you so much John!  3 years? Did you have nasty side affects?

Jan 7, 2018 · PMR Anyone? in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

I was diagnosed just 2 days ago with PMR! Much like you, an active 66 year old on vacation in Tucson for a month, and could barely get out of bed one morning (6 days prior to that day I had been feeling extra stiff and sore, blaming it on the long car ride from Minnesota, bad hotel beds/pillows etc. Urgent care in Tucson diagnosed but is telling me I must see a primary care doctor next weekhere in Tucson. Prescribed 20 mg of Prednisone which gave great relief day one, ok day two, today, day three, I felt poorly in the morning, (not like the day I went to U.C.) took the prednisone, but it took over 2 hours to feel better. I’m reading alot on the internet about changing my diet which seems everybody is suggesting. I’m hoping to get some answers. When I get back home, do I need to see a rheumatogist ? Thanks!
