After 60 days with this condition I finally received an appointment with a Rheumatologist. He quickly diagnosed PMR, handed me a brief fact sheet, adjusted the daily dose of prednisone from my GP, scheduled a future blood and appointment. I can tell from the waiting room that he has a busy practice and can't allocate much time for each appointment. I find your website extremely helpful in understanding the disease and the unfortunate long term struggle toward remission.
