I am confused.
Firstly I read here that polymyalgia does not have a cure but it is inflammation of the blood the pain, the pain of which is controlled by steroids and may go into remission until something triggers a flare.
My dr said today that he has warned several patients, that steroids are a dangerous drug which can cause diabetes. I must also take the alendronic acid tablet once a week as it is a vital protection. He never offers a bone density test.
I have the feeling he not very experienced in polymyalgia does anyone agree or have I misunderstood?
