I'm a caregiver for my Mom and she has RA, PMR and it is very painful in the head and neck she has a pain patch that helps but will this condition ever be better?
My father has PMR but not ra. He has been in remission for years and was told that he may stay that way. Everything that I have read about PMR is that remission is inevitable but so is RA. The only med that helps with PMR is prednisone. Whether shes having the pain from the PMR or the RA is another story. PMR is in the muscle and tendons RA is in the joints. If the pain patch is not working she needs to go back to the dr.
