about 18 months ago I was told I had psoriatic arthritis (psoriasis is in my family) All the research I have done implies that I should have psoriasis but I don't and I have never had any problems with my skin i.e. eczema and other similar conditions.
I do have fibromyalgia which does flare up sometimes and I feel that I was having a flare up when I was diagnosed with the arthritis
When I was diagnosed with arthritis my fingers looked liked sausages and my wrists were puffy and painful as was my back. My knuckles are fine, not misshapen or painful (only very slightly sore if they are sausage like!) When there is a flare up I also have times when my body feels really hot although that is generally during the night.
Can someone tell me if they feel I am or if I am looking at this all wrong and I really do have psoriatic arthritis.
