Hi, I’ve been diagnosed with Psoriasatic arthritis and have tried numerous meds, next step which starts next week is Hyrimoz biological treatments - I’m not sure how I even feel about this as feel like it’s last chance saloon- I’m sure it’s not , but why does it feel so isolating !!

    Hi @Sharon47 welcome to the online community

    Thank you for your posts that came into the forum. You, like many of us who live with arthritis everyday and who appear outwardly to be normal struggle with feelings of isolation because we don't look ill ! It is frustrating and is one of the real plus points of the community that we are supported by others who are experiencing just the same. So welcome , you are not alone. Feel free to share your good and and not so good days with us. We know what you are going through.

    Trying different medications until you find one that makes a difference takes time and a lot of patience and it sounds as if your patience is wearing a bit thin. All we can say is hang on in there .

    There are members of the community who have been down the same route as you and I hope will share their experiences and tips of coping with you.

    We are glad you found us and hope that you will join in with the many discussions and activities available on the community. We look forward to hearing from you again soon

    Best wishes
