Polymyalgia Rheumatica is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the blood vessels in the muscles of the hips, neck, and shoulders. As such, it is considered to be in the Vasculitis family of diseases, which are characterized by the inflammation of blood vessels. These kinds of diseases can affect many parts of the body as they cause the blood vessels to narrow with inflammation and therefore restrict blood flow; this can cause severe damage all over the body.
