This is one of the things it's suspected I have, however the Gp is working with the Fibro diagnosis at the moment....
The OH doc at work mentioned it as did both the chiropractor and osteopath I saw, the symptoms of PMR the associated temporal arteritis and fatigue would explain most of my symptoms.

Doc thought I had poly so put me on a weeks worth of steroids. Basically if they worked then it was probably poly as it can be treated with steroids. We were hoping it was'nt poly cause Im too young for long term steroid treatment and the probs that brings.
They did'nt work so we were pleased but now I sometimes wish it was poly cause at least I cud have had steroids.
Thats wot my GP said anyway.
Its sad when u wish u have one illness over another!
