    Hello, I began psoriatic arthritis without the psoriasis back in 1997, started some meds in 2002 and was accurately diagnosed in 2006 which changed nothing.

    I've had no bother with many of the meds and what I had was soon sorted. It probably helps that I have never been healthy so have low expectations of life and what one gets. I also have ostearthritis thanks to the delay in starting the meds, going by what I have witnessed the quicker one begins the meds the better the outcome can be. Good luck, they won't stop the disease but they will reduce disease activity which is the important thing. DD
