Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis

Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic conditions, little known by the public and poorly understood in medicine.

Causing severe pain and discomfort, the standard treatment is long term use of corticosteroids. Undiagnosed and untreated, GCA can lead to catastrophic sight loss - but this can easily be prevented if caught in time.

PMRGCAuk is a registered charity set up to meet the needs of people with these debilitating conditions, their friends, family and helping professionals.

We offer information and support at all stages - from diagnosis through to recovery. And above all, we offer hope.
