Causes

The exact cause of polymyalgia rheumatica is unknown, but it is believed to be related to an abnormal immune response. Genetic factors may also play a role, as the condition tends to run in families. Environmental factors, such as infections, may trigger the immune system to attack the body’s own tissues, leading to the inflammation and pain associated with polymyalgia rheumatica. Additionally, certain medications, may also be linked to the development of the condition.

This may include medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. It is also important for individuals to stay informed about their condition and to seek support from healthcare professionals and other individuals living with polymyalgia rheumatica.
