Palindromic Rheumatism

Hello and welcome to the IPRS website. This website is for people interested in or suffering from Palindromic Rheumatism. The IPRS has grown with so many members in such a small time as it is the only place offering a place to find advice, help and support for people with PR. The IPRS was created by a sufferer of PR who has had PR for well over 20 years. We also have a great bunch of volunteers that work very hard for the IPRS themselves having PR or now RA. So it is run by people who understand what it is like to live with PR. I hope this website, the information and pictures help and inform you. We have now been going for a number of years and we are glad that we have helped, supported and informed so many. We are even inspiring others to create there own websites and hopefully spreading awareness.



  The International Palindromic Rheumatism Society is a voluntary group made up of people who know the most about PR, that is the people who have PR. The aim of the The IPRS is to reach and bring together as many people affected by PR, to help inform, give advice and offer a place of support. The goal is to have every Dr aware of PR and every sufferer of PR access to an online support and advice group. We hope to have all the information you will ever need to know about PR. As the IPRS is privately funded we welcome donations. We are also glad others have been inspired to start their own website and spread the awareness of PR. However if you do copy our information for your own website please ask first.  




If you want to ask questions about your own experiences and symptoms, or just want further information about anything PR related then the best place to do so is to use one of our three online social networks, where there are lots of friendly people ready to share their advice and experiences with you:

1. The IPRS Forurm
2. Using our Facebook page
3. Using Twitter.


We continue to work on, and update this website whenever we can. We hope to continue to include everything you will ever need to know regarding PR. If you come across any news, or articles regarding PR and PR Medication that isn't included on this site etc please let us know. 

Also we need you to get involved so we can have more example photos and stories on how PR affects you. Particularly if you work and look after a family or have an interesting or unusual situation.

Since we started this site we have received hundreds of messages thanking The IPRS and congratulating us on a fantastic site. These messages mean a lot to the IPRS. This site is receiving thousands of hits a week now and with new forum members joining every day. We try to reply to each and every message however with PR and a limited amount of resources we may not get round to replying straight away. We tend to reply first to the urgent emails and sometimes don't get around to thanking everyone. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you that has thanked The IPRS via email.

We also thank all of you that have supported and enjoyed this site, and hope that you will continue to in the future.
