Since the treatment for PMR involves the use of corticosteroids you probably won't be eligible for the Olympics or other things like that. Try to take it in stride and know that there are others who are also not eligible for medical reasons.
Seriously, be careful with those steroids. You can feel great and really overdo, and prednisone can make it easier to tear a tendon. Don't let the possibilities stop you from taking medicine.
