My story

[p]I was quite fit and active before I was diagnosed with Polymayalgia Rheumatica (PMR) in February 2013. I didn't realise how debilitating it would be for me and how many people had never heard of the condition! The charity PMRGCAuk was a lifeline for me and since becoming a Trustee I have taken every opportunity to raise funds and awareness of PMR and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic conditions, little known by the public and poorly understood in medicine. Causing severe pain and discomfort, the standard treatment is long term use of corticosteroids (steroids). Undiagnosed and untreated, GCA can lead to catastrophic sight loss - but this can easily be prevented if caught in time. [/p][p]The charity was set up to meet the needs of people with these conditions, their friends, family and helping professionals. It offers help through providing support and information, raising awareness and promoting research.[/p][p]I am, along with Dot, Sue, Joanne and Zelda doing the [b]5K Colour Obstacle Rush[/b] at Royal Windsor Racecourse on 18th May 2019. It is a unique event combining the fun of colour powdered runs, the thrill of an obstacle course and the atmosphere of a music festival! It will be a big challenge for me but with the support of my 'team' we will get 'over the line'![/p]
