Suggest treatment for polymyalgia rheumatica
Thank you for posting your query on HCM.
Well I answered you earlier also that although Polymyalgia rheumatica is known to present with stiffness in proximal and central joints , in advanced stage it can involve other joints also . But there are other conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis , metabolic deficiencies, Polymyalgic onset RA that needs to be ruled out before labelling him as suffering fron PMR.
High ESR is a hallmark for this disease plus being extremely responsive to steroids is the gold standard for its diagnosis. As your rheumatologist will investigate further any doubts that you want to clear we will more than happy to answer .Till then pain kllers and antiinflammatories are the standard treatment because only after diagnosis specific treatment can be started .
