Hiya thought I would join after being confirmed today that i have psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, I was also diagnosed with osteoarthritis about 5 yrs ago. I have had psoriasis since infancy and always had joint/muscular pains but recently they have been a pain! LOL :lol:

I am (or try to be) cheerful and bubbly to my detriment at times, I'm always tired (think i was a bear in a former life who liked hibernating!) :wink:

Anyway do not want to bore you but maybe my experiences may help others and I'm sure all of your experiences will help me

thanks and hiya...from Sylvie

    hi Sylvie

    welcome to the forums and hope you will find it useful as well as tell us about your experiences as well.

    i also have the oa and pa and sometimes its hard to stay cheerful but the illusion can help to pull you up if that makes sense so your doing the right thing i think.

    if you come over to the living with sight you will find a fair few of us have the pa and its often helpful to share tips and even bad days. nice to meet you. Cris x
