4. Symptom Development
A person who is suffering from polymyalgia rheumatica may notice the symptoms of the condition long before they are diagnosed with it. One of the things about this condition that should be noted is that it is often not diagnosed until later on. The main reason for this is because most people will simply write off the pain and other issues associated with the condition as just a sign that they are getting older and their parts are not working the same as they once were.
At times, a person who is suffering from polymyalgia rheumatica may develop depression. This comes from not being able to do all of the things that they once could. The other important thing to note about the development of symptoms associated with polymyalgia rheumatica is that the symptoms will often come out on a period of days or even weeks. However, for some people, the symptoms of polymyalgia rheumatica will develop quite slowly and gradually.
