    Default Polymyalgia rheumatica

    My sister has been diagnosed as having Polymyalgia rheumatica. Her treatment is Prednisone. She told me that she had pretty much been chair bound for the last two years before she was diagnosed.
    She feels much better now that she is on steroids. Moonface is there but she doesn’t mind as long as she is feeling better.
    Polymyalgia rheumatica is supposedly a genetic disease. It is also an autoimmune disease and form of vasculitis. There is no known connection to Wegeners.

    Always good to learn about other autoimmune diseases. I'm glad your sister is doing better on the prednisone. I hope she doesn't need it long term or in high doses.
