    Hello gazebo, you sound as though things are somewhat rough. I'm not a Helpline member (just an ordinary forum bod) but I too have PsA and from what you have said it sounds as though a flare could be going on. There is nothing to be done meds-wise, you just have to weather the storm. If you re-post on the LWA part of the forum I hope you will garner more replies and some support. I wish you well. DD

    Dear Gazebo,

    I'm sorry for the delay in replying. I wonder whether you've had a chance to really talk to someone about your pain and have some support? If you'd like some informal support you'd be welcome to ring us and have a chat.

    Another option is to talk things over with someone medically qualified - some people do that with their GP - an outcome of those conversations can be more advice about using pain medication or a referral to a pain management clinic.

    I hope we can help further.

    Guy
