I Saw A Rheumatologist 2x Now. He Insists He Can Tell I Don't Have Psoriatic Arthritis Because I Can Squeeze His Fingers Hard.

I Saw A Rheumatologist 2x Now. He Insists He Can Tell I Don't Have Psoriatic Arthritis Because I Can Squeeze His Fingers Hard.

He does say that I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I am concerned because he won't do any tests. He said that unless I have sausage fingers there's no need for testing. Three of my fingers have nodes on the end joint. I have tendon pain which he says is fibro... And knee, shoulder, elbow issues. Should I be concerned?? Get another opinion? I don't want to wait to get treatment until I'm decrepit. 😞

Will Swimming In A Chlorine Pool Irritate My Skin?

Will Swimming In A Chlorine Pool Irritate My Skin?

I'm hoping to start swimming to get gentle exercise. My skin is looking clearer and to be honest I don't really care what people think about my skin now, just want to get on with getting better which exercise and endorphins can only help with. I'm too tired and weak to go running or to the gym so was thinking swimming would be my best bet but I'm worried that chlorine will irritate or cause my skin to flare and I don't want that when my skin is improving. If anyone does swim I'd love to hear… read more

Has Anyone Experienced Prolonged Muscle And Or Joint Pain After Getting There Covid Booster Shot?

Has Anyone Experienced Prolonged Muscle And Or Joint Pain After Getting There Covid Booster Shot?

I received a booster shot in December and all hell broke out after that. I had no issues before but within a week of my booster my arm and leg muscles become very sore and have not gone away. I am thinking the booster put my immune system into overdrive and created these issues. Thoughts ?

Hope that you are not crying? Even with an impending rainstorm, today is a good day. Knee MD said no surgery as long as I am not in pain, but go ahead with the shoulder. A shot in the finger so no… read more

Anyone Else Had A Flare Up After Their Covid Vaccination?

Anyone Else Had A Flare Up After Their Covid Vaccination?

Had my first dose of the astra zenica vaccine nearly 3 weeks ago and my psoriasis has been so bad since. I've been managing to more or less keep it under control for nearly 4yrs and can't really put it down to anything else triggering this flare up, just wondered if anyone else had experienced the same?

After 2 years of vaccines and boosters (4) I have a chronic "scalp psoriasis" that responds to nothing! Only had one mild case before this. Thankful for the vaccines but a tough choice. They rev-up… read more

Hi All, I've Been Told I Have Psoriatic Arthritis In My Lower Back. Does Anyone Else Have This?

Hi All, I've Been Told I Have Psoriatic Arthritis In My Lower Back. Does Anyone Else Have This?

This has been diagnosed from an x-ray only and because I have psoriasis (am on cyclosporin) I think the Docor is just diagnosing that as it's just easy to say that
Back pain for over 4 months... I'm a regular at the gym (3-5 times a week)
The pain is constant and doesn't ease.
I've had physio which didn't help (acupuncture/tens machine/ massage/ ultra sound/exercises etc) nothing has helped.
I was also offered pain killers which to be honest is just an easy fix .

Maybe I'm in denial but I… read more
