My Life With Psoriatic Arthritis

One day about 15 years ago, I woke up with pain in my hip and broke out with a rash and I itched all the time. I had tried everything, I even tried ointments for this stuff but it would make it worse.

Living with psoriastic arthritis

First I was told that it was just autoimmune disease. Then I went back to my doctor and they took a blood test and found out that I had Psoriatic Arthritis. I hurt and itch every day and nothing seems to help me no matter what. I can’t do things like I used to and it is so aggravating. I can’t do anything with my left hand because I have no use in it and I lost all my fingernails on that hand.

    @sheababe69, thank you for sharing with us. I really do hear your frustrations. I am sorry that you haven’t found anything that helps. When you state you lost use of your left hand, is this because of the pain? What does your doctor say about it? Shayla (, Team)
