Just a quick summary of me … i quess.
I was diagnosed about a year ago by my physiotherapist who was treating me at the time for sciatica. I had terrible skin psoriasis at that time, and she convinced me to go see my GP … who then tossed me over to a local outpatient clinic for PsA.
Thinking it was just old age creeping up on me … i was soon informed it was not.
Thanks to a govt program which has found that PsA is very underfunded, and not well known in Ontario, I qualified for meeting the criteria to help fight this condition.
So thats it … newly diagnosed, doing some methotrexate, and lots of bloodwork and visits, as if i didnt have enough already.
I had some pretty serious medical conditions in the the past … so I was not totally up to speed on this condition … but i have been told that it has been caught on time …
