Newly diagnosed with PSA
first symptoms in lockdown very stiff fingers !
Drs prescribed pain pills naproxen then co codomol ect and I felt like I needed to know what was happening so asked Dr for referral
Spoke to Rheumatology consultant and told him symptoms and I do have a few skin problems and nail changes had xrays and Mri
xrays show osteoarthritis in thumb and wrists
Mri showed inflammation in joints and tendons below the knuckles.
so in the next few weeks he wants to inject steroids into my joints I’m a bit scared 😟
I’m 44 and I just needed some support I’ve had to give up my hairdressing work due to hands being so painful 😣
