How Do You Know If You Have Psoriatic Arthritus?

How Do You Know If You Have Psoriatic Arthritus?

I am feeling sore in some of my finger joints, knees and on one foot. I bought some arthritus tylenol last year.So I guess I should try that.
I have an appt with a rhumatologist in November..

I saw the rhumatologist today. She said I don't have psoriatic arthritus , that it's just old people arthritus.(not very polite of her) But I'm not feeling very confident of her diagnosis.
I got my feet & hands xrayed too. She said she would call if she saw anything.

Antinflammatories are likely to ease your pain more than tylenol if it is an inflammatory issue in your body. Advil helps me and I also take Diclofenac; both help. What you are describing sounds like it could be PsA. Hope you can get a diagnosis soon!

It could be PSA. I definitely would have your rheumatologist check it while you’re there. Take care
