Thankyou for all your warm welcomes!!! :)
I have been unwell for a few years now. I will spare you all the details and just say my Doctor thought it was a classic presentation of RA due to lots of joint pain and fatigue. She sent me of to a Rheumatologist who acted as if I was some bored housewife with nothing better to do!!!
Over the next few months the skin on my hands got really thin and translucent with lots of telangiectasias, and slight deformities of my fingers, so my Doctor sent me off for a second opinion. That appointment was even worse and I was out the door in 15 minutes!!! I few weeks before the appointment a had developed really sore ankle joints that were waking me up in extreme pain....she barely paid attention to that. I recently ended up going to physio for my swollen inturned knees and he said that while my knees are bad, my ankles have bone spurs on them and the joints are very lose and he felt it was an inflammatory problem.
My bloodwork is all negative, and I am now wondering if the sores I have on my forehead and scalp are psorasis and perhaps I have PsA. I only have a small amount so I am unsure. I also have a few pits in most of my fingernails. My index and middle finger are also starting to twist and my knuckles get red and sore.
Sorry for the long post BUT does this sound like PsA.....can you have it with a small amount of psorasis? Thankyou in advance for any replies!!! :)
