POLYMYALGIA RHEUMATICA Overview

WHAT IS POLYMYALGIA RHEUMATICA?


Polymyalgia rheumatica is a disorder typically seen in older adults that causes widespread pain and stiffness in various muscles of their body especially around the shoulders, neck and hips.

The word ‘poly’ means many and the word ‘myalgia’ means muscle pain.


RISK FACTORS


  • Age: average age when symptoms start is 70yrs.
  • Sex: disease affects women more often than men. 
  • Race: more frequent in whites than non-whites, but people of all races can get it. 
  • Smoking or drinking alcohol will increase your risk of developing this disease.

COMPLICATIONS


Polymyalgia rheumatica symptoms can interfere with day-to-day activities, especially if the condition goes untreated. 

Without appropriate treatment, the pain and stiffness can severely reduce mobility. You may eventually become unable to complete simple tasks on your own, such as bathing, getting dressed, combing your hair, climbing stairs etc. Some people also experience a temporary loss of joint function. 

Some people with this disease can develop a potentially dangerous condition called giant cell arteritis (or temporal arteritis involves inflammation of the blood vessels called arteries). 

It can cause headaches(on the side of the head), scalp tenderness, vision changes or jaw pain when eating.

People with polymyalgia rheumatica sometimes can also develop peripheral artery disease. This condition impairs blood circulation causing leg pain and ulcers.
