Hi All

Had psoriatic arthritis since 2013 - treated with Methotrexate weekly injections.

When the coronavirus hit us I stopped taking the injections.

Now one of my fingers and a toe has blown up and bent ... extremely painful.

I've just started Tramadol for the pain, the pain is right up there ... and started taking the Methotrexate again.

Sadly, as my immune system will be compromised - if I get this virus my chances are slim .... what a choice! :(
