RE: PsA

RE: PsA

If you have psoriasis and arthritis can it be concluded that you have PsA ? I was diagnosed w/psoriasis recently and 2 yrs ago osteoarthritis... so could this be a wrong diagnosis on my arthritis and I actually have PsA ????? Would like for medical professional to respond please... my pain is severe in spine , wrist, and ribcage....no knees or ankles....hip sometimes (only 1) and fingers swell ???

Agree with above answers. There are other conditions that run alongside this autoimmune problem like ankylosing spondylitis ) and it is possible to have osteoarthritis or RA in addition to PSA)... so Rheumatologist can give accurate do after an exam and some bloodwork.

If you haven't already seen a rheumatologist is time. Only 3% of the Psoriasis patients will develop PSA. Mine started on my fingers. Also there are more inflamatory diseases that can get misdiagnosed with the Arthritis. So you better get an appointment soon.

Terri is right a rheumatologist should be asked. I have a rheumatologist and she tells me that I have both psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis. My knee hurts and I saw a surgeon who thinks I will need a knee replacement soon. He thinks my knee is not related to my psoriatic arthritis. It is an old sport injury and it has caused me to lose all the cartilage in my knee. Uh, so much to consider. Good luck!

I really think a rheumatologist should have that answer... There are tests to determine PsA, etc...
So, my answer is, I really don't know...
Sorry
