Hello,
I'm 66 and was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in my twenties. Currently managing my condition with two meds. Some days are good, some are not.
Great to have the Versus Arthritis website and this forum to refer to in days of need.

    Hi granloub :D I'm 73 and had RA since 15 and OA since a bit later :lol: I'm on meth and hydroxy and they work well for me. Good to have you on board. Do join in anywhere. I'm sure your experiences will be useful to others.

    Hello, I have PsA, OA and fibro, I began aged 37 and am now 60. My two meds are meth and humira (both of which I inject) and they usually keep matters under control but not at the moment. Rest assured you will be chatting witn the initiated - we all get it because we all have it in one form or another, lucky us :lol: DD

    Hi Newbie, I am also new here, i turn 30 in a few months and I am also living with psoriatic arthritis. I have never met or chatted to anyone with the same form as myself. It would be really good to chat to someone about how it has affected you over the years. Im currently not medicated after coming off Methotrexates for my fiance and i can try for a baby. I am severely struggling with pain and chronic fatigue which is drastically affecting mymental health, I should be getting switched over to Cyclosporine next week.

    Anyway, good to connect and hope to chat further soon x
