Recently diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis

Hello everyone

i have recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, though I suspect I have had it for some time. I have been prescribed methotrexate due to start soon. I can walk ok though I have slowed down and have pain in back, hips, knees etc. I am retired but currently have an active social life, look after grandkids, and still do some freelance work.

would like to hear anyone’s experience of getting used to diagnosis and methotrexate. Also how you handle seeing family and friends as the idea of having to go back to staying in and not seeing people very depressing.
