The main differential diagnosis is polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR), although pain, stiffness and weakness at the level of the shoulders and pelvic girdle with associated systemic symptoms ( fever , malaise , fatigue , weight loss ) is more typical of PMR. Prospective studies have found a subgroup of PMR patients with hand edema, as well as other similarities.  Thus, RS3PE has been proposed as a condition related to PMR or even that they are both part of the same disorder.  However, PMR typically requires protracted courses of steroids, whereas corticosteroids can be tapered more quickly with persisting remission in RS3PE.
