Hello everyone, I was wondering if there were other “young” patients here - tomorrow is my 42 birthday and on Wednesday I expect to get the diagnosis of PMR confirmed by a rheumatologist (gp already ran test and told me this is what I have).
Now since the onset of the severe pain and stiffness some 6 weeks ago, I have had better and worse days and some days my hips are worse than my shoulders - is this normal?
How long are “flares” lasting in general?
Thanks for any insight!!
