    Hi Summer nice to meet you and welcome to the web site I have PA and RA Had the PA for about 30 years now, Its not nice but you learn to cope and you will find this site is a great help to you. we have a great bunch of people here who you can talk to about anything especialy when its getting you down. Well i could prattle on for god knows how long and i sometimes do. Its no good me just going on tell me the sort of thing you want to know about. You never said what medication you have been put on. Have you psoriasis how long have you had it. some people can get the PA without the outbreak of Psoriasis i believe. Anyway as i said i have had it for 30 years and i'm still hear. Your future PA depends on how long you had it prior to being diagnosed really, as you know there is no cure but they can slow it down and make it go into remission, but they will try to get you on top of it. Where have you got the pain. There are other people with PA on the site and you will eventually meet them but please feel free to ask anything and i'll get back to you. Best thing for the moment is to try not to worry because the stress can make you worse. Take care and keep your chin up.

    Hello Summer, Welcome to the site, lots of friendly peeps on here.

    I have RA, recently diagnosed :( and soon to start meds. This site has been a marvellous find, lots of help and support from folk :) and we all have one thing in common - a daily battle with 'arthur' (arthritis!).

    A good idea is to read back through the old postings - you'll soon get lots of info.

    Good luck :!:

    Hi Summer
    Welcome to the site, finding this site was the best thing I did so I hope you will find it useful too. I have PA and OA in my hands. I was diagnosed in August so am still adjusting my medication at present, I have great Rheumy team available at the end of the phone if I am worried. I find the tiredness the most difficult to deal with and have to pace myself. If you have any worries just post on here and someone will be able to help you and you will get a lot of support from people who know what it's like to have arthritis in all it's forms. Fay
