PSA SYMPTOMS

PSA SYMPTOMS

I have been having terrible achilles tendon pain for 2 weeks now. I went to a sports medicine Dr on the 28th,and he diagnosed me with Achilles tendinitis and a heel spur. He has me sleeping with a night splint, some exercises and told me to take ibuprofen for pain and come back in 4 weeks. I asked to be tested for PSA, but he said he didn’t think that was my issue.

Looking For A PsA Doctor In The Cape Coral, FL Area.

Looking For A PsA Doctor In The Cape Coral, FL Area.

Please help. I keep getting sent to rheumatologists who specialize in RA which I do not have and dismiss me because I do have some osteoarthritis. I'm told just see a dermatologist for the psoriasis. My dermatologist was not familiar with psoriatric arthritis.
I would appreciate any and all leads to a good PsA doctor in the Cape Coral area of SW FL. Thank you.
My daughter is writing this for me.

What About Psoriasis And Monkey Pox?

What About Psoriasis And Monkey Pox?

I'm worried about catching monkey pox which could cause a psoriasis flare. Since they both itch I'm imagining a double whammy outbreak. I haven't found any information regarding this or whether or not someone with psoriasis should receive the monkey pox vaccine. Anyone have any information on this?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Are you seriously believing the Monkey Pox hype?? Don't. It's a joke. Symptoms are those of immunity suppression, which we ALL know by now is totally brought on by the poison in the C19 vaxs🤬
