You can have a blood test that would indicate this.

I'm 58 yrs old, and starting to ache, hips, lower back ,arms sometimes ! How do us with psoriasis know whether it is psoriatic arthritis or not?? I'm thinking like you that it is. I take Mobic daily for inflation and it's like an easier ibuprofen on your stomach and liver. But how do we know? Is there a test?
