There is a light at the end of your poly tunnel!  Normally it runs its course and goes away in about 5 years......normally.

In answer to  HVAC's  question, basically its an inflammation that affects the hips and shoulders, usually hitting folks over 50 or 60, determined by blood tests, leaves them stiff, anemic, miserable basically!

Welcome!

My Mom and Husband both have PMR... and I have PPMS, from what I've read there is no link.  Unfortunately, although it does go away it ineventability also returns at some point... I hope you feel better soon... the treatment of choice is large doses of prednisone.
