Wondering if anyone else has had the experience of being diagnosed by one rumatologist with psoratic arthriatis and got started on methotrexate at only 7.5mg a week, when next seen 4 months later by a different doctor at the hospital he decided that it wasn't arthritis but fibromalgia and he stopped all my meds including pain killers and has referred me to psychiatric team as he says the pain is all in my head

Don't let ANY dr. tell you fibro is in your head! I have pa &pustular pa, fibro, copd and osteo., and type 2 diab and they are all real! I take Cymbalta for fibro and have cut back to every other day..it seems to keep it at bay. I've been on humira, embrel, stelera, remicade, along with methotrexate from the beginning and currently back on humira... I have been on good probiotics and changed my diet for 6 weeks now and have been having great results..knock on wood!!! All I can say is I think I'm onto something here..no more high blood sugar, no pains. no psoriasis on hands and feet or scalp...keep trying for yourselves and don't give up. I go to my rheumatologist this wed and will be interested in liver scores..I'll keep you all posted.

Been there. It took over 5 years to get mds to listen during which time it progressed and my feet are like you described. Heel and ankle and foot bottom pain. Also. my knees are affected. I am in bed most of the time I am on methotrexate' prenisone but also infusion. They tell me it takes 4 infusions to feel a different. It takes 6 months to get 4 infusions done. I have not had my 3rd yet. My girlfriend figured it out and started the process with a rheumotologist. But no quick results. I am on pain meds because I have other issues other but the pain has been off the chart.
