    Hi @sunbeam, and welcome- great username!

    You appear to be the first person to discuss Polymialgia Rheumatica on the community so far- would you perhaps like to tell us some more about your own experiences?

    Stat the moment I am not suffering too much as I am on medication. I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this complaint?

    I don't have PR and never did, though it is one of the completely wrong diagnoses I've been given in the past, so I have done a bit of research. From what I remember speaking to another lady at the clinic who had it, once the meds kicked in she was a lot better and was managing well, but she had to keep taking them for a very long time.
