Does polymyalgia rheumatica recur? I had it 5 years ago and endured many months of misery. Also got a cataract from the steroids. Now my upper arm muscles are getting sore again. Same time of year, same location (southern Arizona).
YES! It can and does. I have had it several times. Getting the prednisone dose correct again is very difficult or can be. I hope this is a false alarm. Take care and go slowly.
Yes, it can. I drink tart cherry juice at night one hour before bed. I noticed an improvement in about 10 days. Also, I use guided imagery by Bellaruth Naparstek at Healthjourneys.com. I use the meditation for rheumatic arthritis because it is similar to PMR. She also has a meditation for pain which I find very helpful.
Yes, it only goes into remission, so can come back several times...
