Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXX,

the term "Rheumetrcia" doesn't exist in medicine. Could it be rheumatoid arthritis? If there is any doubt please describe your symptoms and upload your medical reports from clinic or office.

Brief Answer:
Polymyalgia rheumatica to be treated with cortisone immediately

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

thanks, now i know what you mean. Polymyalgia rheumatica needs short term cortisone therapy, then it will get better very soon! I am assuming your treating doctors put you on that.
