In brief: See below

Pmr is a disorder characterized by muscle pain, often around the shoulders & hips.
Often seen in late middle aged or elderly individuals. It can be associated with temporal arteritis that has the symptoms of headaches, jaw fatigue and vision problems. Early recognition is important. There is no confirmatory test; however an elevated sed rate or CRP can aid in diagnosis. Steroids are the treatment.
