Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis: A survival guide
Kate Gilbert
I wrote this book to give people who have polymyalgia rheumatica, or giant cell arteritis, and their friends and carers, information about these illnesses. It draws on recent research, case studies, and my own experience, to give insight into what it is like to have these conditions, and how sufferers and those close to them can help themselves in the management of their recovery.

'This book should be prescribed on diagnosis'

'This book is a lifesaver'

This book Has taught me more about my illness (GCA), than I could know from other sources. It is my best buy, EVER !!!
The book is thoroughly researched, up to date, and patient friendly, but still technical enough to satisfy the most demanding of those who want to understand. If you have PMR/GCA as I do, reading this book is almost as essential as the prednisolone. Thank you Kate Gilbert you have contributed immeasurably to my management of PMR.

The Bible of PMR!

'A Must for Any PMR/GCA Sufferer'

Tracey, 16th January 2015

This book has really helped to make sense of the bewilderment of having been diagnosed with this little known debilitating illness. It is written in far more depth, but easily understood, than the basic literature available from the rheumatology society. Its definitely beginning to feel like my bible for PMR and handy to dip in and out of for family and friends too.

Brilliant book, written by a fellow sufferer in plain English describing exactly what I am going through. Buy it now.
