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. 😞

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?

Alcohol

Alcohol

I know it says alcohol is bad for break outs but do any of you drink and have you had side effects?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Same here, alcohol seems to have no negative effect. In fact my experience has been that red wine actually seems to trigger less not more inflammation!

Rib And Spinal Pain

Rib And Spinal Pain

Hi, I've been experiencing rib pain for over 10 years. I was diagnosed with costochondritis about 9 years ago. My question is, most of my pain is in the ribs in my back around my shoulder blade, is this part of costochondritis? Also, I feel pain and tenderness along my upper vertebrae and in my shoulder blade muscles. I'm slowly piecing together my medical history and symptoms I've experienced over the years. I had a severe case of achilles tendonitis as a teenager, more recently I've had elbow… read more

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

It can if it is too strong. I suggest rinsing off real well afterwards. And putting on lotion.
