I doubt it. The disease is known to get better on it's own or to fluctuate which could make someone think it's related to taking a certain drug. Here's what I found on this site about it's causes:
The exact cause of polymyalgia rheumatica is unknown. However, there are two factors that appear to be involved in the development of this condition, including:
1--Genetics. Certain genes and variations in some genes may increase your susceptibility to developing polymyalgia rheumatica.
2--An environmental exposure. New cases of polymyalgia tend to come in cycles and may develop seasonally, which suggests that an environmental trigger, such as a virus, might play a role. But no specific virus has been shown to cause polymyalgia rheumatica.
