No. My doctor is pretty well up to date. My mothet had pmr as well so I know that’s what I have. GCA (giant cell arteritis) is present in 20% of those with PMR. You should google it.
What are your symptoms?

I have been on prednisone for PMR for 2 years and tried to lower it. I was at 1 mg and then tried to go to 1/2 mg . Then I got symptoms of GCA so l’m back to 10 mg. I was told that I should gradually go down but when I get to 1 mg again to stay at that dose for 6 months. I know a lady who was on it for 10 years.
