A Promising Treatment for Polymyalgia Rheumatica


  • The average age when symptoms start is 70. Women are affected somewhat more often than men. It is more frequent in whites than nonwhites, but all races can get PMR.
  • The typical polymyalgia rheumatica symptoms (what you feel) of PMR are aching and stiffness about the upper arms, neck, lower back and thighs.
  • These symptoms develop quickly and are worse in the morning.
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica symptoms respond promptly to low doses of corticosteroids, but may recur as the dose is lowered
