Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) is a rheumatic disease characterized by pain and stiffness in the shoulder and hip region of people over 50 years old. The disease causes pain and stiffness in shoulders and hip movements especially in the morning when they are over 50 years old. In addition, other joints can also be painful. Especially in the neck, shoulders and hip regions, the bursa is watching the inflatable pads. The cause is an unknown rheumatic disease. It is more common in women.

There is no definite assay for PMR diagnosis. All signs and symptoms need to be assessed in bricks. Over the age of 50, especially in women, shoulder and hip region pain and morning prisoners should be suspected of this disease. It is very useful to see the bruise inflammation in the shoulder and hip region with the joint ultrasound. Sedimentation and elevation of CRP in blood tests are important in terms of additional evidence for diagnosis.
