You are probably here because you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica. I've created this site not because there is a lack of information on the internet about PMR, but a lack of support.
I was diagnosed with PMR over 3 years ago now, and in that time I have met only 3 people who share the condition. This site is a space for people with PMR to come and share their story, their treatment, their experiences and their support with others.
In this way, by knowing you are not alone and that others all around the world understand what you are going through, I wish to offer a little unity to those who are learning to cope with the condition.
Please take some time to peruse the information on the site, and stay a while. The most valuable contribution you can make is to write a few lines about your story. I'll continue to add more profiles as time goes by. You can contact me through this site by clicking on the Contact page. I'd love to hear from you.
All the best to you,

Is there a unified understanding of what constitutes an ideal polymyalgia diet? We are just beginning to understand how we may use food as a medicine.
