Points of confusion
1)PMR is an autoimmune disorder. The body attacks itself. Bursas and synovial fluid are involved. When you take prednisone you feel better with a day. If the is the body that is attacking itself for weeks how can you body recover so fast.
2)PMR present itself as muscle pain. Ok so the brain is wired to pain receptors and the muscles refuse to respond because of pain. Which means you should be able to overcome muscle weakness with will power. I was really never able to do this. But after I started moving and kept moving it did seem to get easier. Is this the brain becoming numb to the self inflicted pain and that is why this happens?
