My mother was just told she has Polymalgia myalgia , which I don't know much about. She's in extreme pain and is on pain medicine for her pain and is crying on the phone with me all the time. Really not sure if anybody knows anything about it or any natural recommendations?

Doctors usually prescribe Prednisone initially for pain relief and try and wean patients on to a lower dose over time.

Like all inflammatory diseases getting the adrenal glands working as well as possible to increase the body's natural steroid hormone (cortisol) levels is the natural way.

Some people with Polymyalgia Rheumatica(PMR) can also be suffering from Giant Cell Arteritis, an inflammation of some key arteries including the aorta. Patients should be checked as to whether they have this condition as well as PMR.
