BOOK NOW FOR OUR MEMBERS' DAY & AGM

Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic conditions that are little known by the public and have been poorly understood in medicine, although scientific interest in them is now increasing. They can strike separately, but often together, and usually affect older people. They cause severe pain and discomfort and the standard treatment is long-term use of corticosteroids. Undiagnosed and untreated GCA can lead to catastrophic sight loss, although this is easily prevented if caught in time.

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.

What we offer

We offer information and support at all stages – from diagnosis through to recovery. We provide information packs, a helpline, newsletters, support groups around the country, and a web forum where you can share your experiences and learn from other people with PMR and GCA.

Above all, we offer hope!

Our free helpline number is 0300 111 5090 or email helpline@pmrgca.org.uk
For all general enquiries, including the Rheuma Research Roadshow, please call our office number 0300 999 5090 or email info@pmrgca.org.uk
