Has anyone out there been diagnosed with polymyalgia (PMR)or temporal artritis? This usualy affects people in their 60's however my mum was diagnosed with it in her 40's and so when I saw the general consultant last year (aged 45) with same symptoms was told I had it also and perscribed 40mgs steroids. We both have so many lupus symptoms pretty convinced that is what it is, particularly given the fact that PMR usually affects you for aprox 18mths and mum has been affected for 20yrs. Not sure if it coud be in addition to or part of lupus though.
