Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic conditions that have been little known by the public and little understood in medicine. They can strike separately, but often together, and usually affect older people. They cause severe pain and discomfort and the only known effective treatment is long-term use of corticosteroids.
Polymyalgia Rheumatica & Giant Cell Arteritis UK (PMRGCAuk) is a registered charity established to meet the needs of people with these debilitating conditions, their friends, families and helping professionals.
