I'm confused about the inflammation people refer to in our blood vessels due to PMR. Can someone try and explain it or refer me to some articles. Is this because PMR is regarded as a form of vasculitis? Interestingly I do struggle to describe my symptoms to friends as it's not muscular nor joint, often I just describe it as a weird feeling! Sometimes I do feel as if my veins are inflamed as I get a sensation down my arms and legs occasionally.
Nearly 18 months into this journey I'm still unsure of what PMR is about and what damage it's doing. I think I spend most time worrying about the damage from Pred and wondering if any daily aches are from steroid reduction or the PMR or just age (mind you I'm only 58 and was very fit and active before all this started, as seems to be the case of many here)
Bit of a long winded Post but these things spring to mind as I read my daily email from here.
