In Response To: Re: Polymyalgia rheumatica/ Type A (gaile nellett)

I first had polymyalgia rheumatica seven years ago. I could barely walk by the time it was diagnosed. Sed rate was extremel;y high. Two years of tapered doses of predisone left me feeling cured.
However, I have since had many mild flare-ups and read that the illness only goes into remission. I now believe that prolonged stress (even mild stress) can trigger it off. Rest, serenity, and non-steroid anti inflammatories help me a great deal. ( I take naproxen). I have read that the illness is caused by an immune system disorder. Perhaps we sufferers have had too many infections over the years, too many antibiotics taken to fight them?? I also believe it is associated with being an overacheiver, and having a nature prone to anxiety and negativism. Maybe negative feelings cause harmful body chemistry to flood through one's body. I don't believe diet makes any difference. I've always eaten very healthily. Lots of sleep helps a great deal. And mild exercise. Lots of laughter. perhaps this is why I've never had any more major attacks. Any comments?
