    Hi butterfly,
    sorry to hear that you are struggling with fluid retention, you didn't mention where it was? I would strongly recommend that you speak to your GP about this so that he can start some treatment for you if needed.

    I cannot find any specific details about fluid retention being related to psoriatic arthritis, however I'm sure other people will be of to share their experiences with you. I have managed to find a link to the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, and you may find it useful to have a look at this. http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/arthritis-information/conditions/psoriatic-arthritis/symptoms.aspx
    keep us up-to-date with how you get on
    Best Wishes

    Hi butterfly,

    I see Sharon has given a speedy and helpful response. I don’t think there is anything I can add, except to say that if it would help to talk over anything to do with arthritis, you are very welcome to call the Helplines (Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 5pm).

    With best wishes,
