I had an appointment booked with a specialist physiotherapist before I was told I have PMr and after reading in the forum that specialists don’t always know what it is let alone how to deal with I wasn’t expecting much today. I told him about issues in reference to shoulder, total shoulder replacement and damaged nerve and just threw in at end “oh and I have just been told by gp I have pmr”
My very clever physio then asked how my gp had diagnosed it, did I have raised markers, had Pred made a difference and had he referred me? He then went on to say “it’s more common in the 50s than doctors realise”
I am keeping this physio!!
