Joint Pain and Psoriasis

Posted on April 11, 2018

If you have joint pain in addition to skin symptoms, you're not alone. Some people with psoriasis experience joint pain, which may be the result of psoriatic arthritis. Members of MyPsoriasisTeam often talk about stiffness and swelling that makes it hard to walk or sleep. “I live with different degrees of pain, which fluctuate from moment to moment and joint to joint,” says one member. Another had to “buy shoes two sizes larger, and my fingers are bending downward toward my palms.” Connecting with MyPsoriasisTeam members can help you learn how others are finding relief from joint pain with medications, water therapy, topical creams, and other remedies.

On MyPsoriasisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Joint pain one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
