    Hello, I have PsA and OA, I began back in 1997 so know a little about having arthritis. I hope you find the forum to be of interest and feel able to contribute here and there, we all get it because we've all got it. DD

    Hello and welcome from me too :D I have RA too which is well controlled these days by methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine. It also led to OA which led to new hips and knees :D

    How can we help? Just ask away if you have questions.
