Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are tried all the time.
having polymyalgia rheumatica can be caused by your immune system attacking your own body and cells. this can weaken your immune system and make you more prone to MRSA skin infection.
also polymyalgia rheumatica is often treated with steroid medications which can often suppress the immune system as well.
the prednisone you were on is a steroid which can suppress your immune system.
how did they find MRSA?
