Does anyone besides me have (PMR) Polymyalgia Rhuematica? I have not met anyone with PMR. I am beginning to think I am the only one...although my doctors tell me I am not. Is anyone on Chronic Pain have PMR? I would like to talk to you to see how you are managing your illness. I feel like Kermit the Frog... It's lonely being "green". It's lonely having PMR! It's the chronic pain and all the other diagnosis that unites us. 👨❤️💋👨
One of my dad's aunts that i have never met has it. Apparently they were talking about me and she started talking about how fibro is a waste basked diagnosis and I should try to get diagnosed with what she has. 😕 Anyways. Given the large number of undiagnosed here and the ones who feel the given diagnosis just doesnt cover it im sure there are others here that have it but just don't know yet. Hugs
I think a lot of people are misdiagnosed. I think the most common misdiagnosis is fibro and then once someone has that label absolutely everything is considered fibro because they don't want to look deeper. Symptoms for fibro overlap a lot of conditions
Wow after doing a bit of research I would bet that alot of us might fall into this diagnosis. I think that way too many patients are diagnosed with fibro as a catch all by doctors to lazy to do the real diagnostic work. I think fibro has become a catch all for patients that are complex and having pain. Thanks for the post. I am sure you are not alone. Besides Kermit is awesome!
Maybe. I have mostly pain in my upper body and lower body, but I have many other symptoms that are characteristic of fibromyalgia and not polymyalgia. So maybe if they are related and/or can be coexisting.
LMB you maybe right. Why are so many diagnosis with Fibro and not Polymyalgia Rhuematica not that I want more people to have PMR because one doctor told me PMR is like having Fibro ten times worst. Just would like to compair notes with someone who actually have the disease.... I want someone to be like me...it's not easy being green! 🐸
