Diagnosed with PMR in March this year and been on pred ever since - now 14mg. I hadnt heard of it previously so bought Kate Gilbert's book on PMR and GCA to understand it better. I found it very useful but now I have got to the end feel concerned when I read on page 152 'the Keekle primary care team have had a paper on PMR published and they were able to show that in the first 6 months after a diagnosis of PMR, patients are around 70% more likely to receive a diagnosis of cancer.'
I am feeling bad enough with the PMR and it has certainly restricted me to what I can and cannot do but am really concerned now I have read this and hoping I may have misunderstood.
Can anyone help and advise me please?
