Hi all
New to his site and look forward to sharing and receiving support from fellow suffers. I have psoriatic arthritis and gradually using the use of my hands. :cry:

    Hi Michaela and welcome from me too.

    Mine is RA but, I guess, closely related to PsA. Actually, new docs tend to get excited when I mention my Mum had psoriasis but, in the complete absence of it in me, they have to give up :wink:

    Mine started in my hands many years ago. It's virtually burnt itself out there now but all my finger joints are either ultra-wiggly or self-fused.

    If you've any questions just fire away, preferably on the Living With Arthritis forum as more people look in there :D
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hello, I have PsA, OA and fibromyalgia but so far so good with my hands: yes they hurt from time to time but I think the disease is sufficiently controlled so they are not being affected as yet; I don't have much psoriasis either. What meds are you taking? DD
