Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis: a survival guide. 2nd edition.


by: Kate Gilbert PhD
Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic inflammatory illnesses that affect older people – generally, people over 50. They are chronic autoimmune conditions that cause untold misery, pain and debilitation. More acutely, undiagnosed GCA can lead to blindness, which is irreversible.
