In brief: Polymyalgia rheuma

Most people who develop polymyalgia rheumatica are older than 65.
It rarely affects people younger than 50. However, it can happen at any age.

In brief: No

By definition polymyalgia rheumatica doesn't start until one is over 50.
Of course, nothing is impossible and in a 49 year old with classic symptoms you might consider it, but at the age of 35, it should not be in the differential.
