Polymyalgia

I have Polymyalgia.  Woke up April of 2010 with it.  My muscles in my arms, hips and thighs hurt
like I just ran a marathon, all the time.

Hello there!
Polymyalgia rheumatica means pain in many muscles. It is common for people suffering from this disorder to wake up early morning with pain in their muscles. Most of the cases are associated with temporal arteritis.Some viruses like parvovirus B19, adenovirus etc also have been linked with this condition. Oral corticosteroids are used for curing these symtoms (symptoms).Antinflammatory drugs also help. It is advisable to adopt a healthy lifestlye.Exercise daily and take a nutritious meal rich in fruits and vegetables. All these should help. Consult a local health care provider in case you need medications. Hope it helps.
Best luck!
