I have this autoimmune for about 10 years. Looking for friends to stay motivated and encourage to fight.
I don't have the arthritis, fortunately, but I've got a double-whammy case of psoriasis (from both sides of my family). Autoimmunity!0
I have psoriatic arthritis so I am right there with you0
i have PSA, HLAB27 and plenty of other fun autoimmune diseases and anomalies! feel free to add me if you wish. i'm not into exercise just yet, i just started on Xeljanz and until that kicks-in, i really don't have the energy or stamina. have 70+ lbs to lose.1
Gromstrong, what kind of exercises are you doing? I was diagnosed last November with PSA but I’m not doing any exercises yet. Still trying to walk pain free! Hopefully my new biologic does the trick. And you, any exercise routines?0
My right foot is so inflamed, I can't walk. Hopefully, goes away in few days. Icing and advil. Any advice to contol pain ?0
I also have psoriatic arthritis for over 3 years. I take meloxicam to lower inflammation.
@GROMstrong will elevating your foot help?1
I have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Been taking methotrexate for about a year and a half. It helped the inflammation I had in one of my toes and seemed to be helping my plaques for a while, but now the plaques are returning. Fortunately still no inflammation, though. /fingers crossed2
My doctor prescribed me today meloxicam hope this helps the inflammation and pain. Been hurting for over a month. Need to get better to go back to the gym.0
Wow, I had the worst night because of PA. Did not sleep much becuse if the pain from my ankle, feels like lighting shooting through my body. Any ideas to deal through this ?0
Ankle still swollen, still preventing my gym time..Getting frustrated.0
Still have pain in my feet everyday. This is unbelievable.0
Pain not going, still cant hit the gym..I have to concentrate on diet.0
How do you fight Psoriatic Arthritis ?0
I eat a low-fodmap diet that helps ease symptoms. Also magnesium baths and regular self-massage using organic olive oil with arnica essential oil eases pain, and rest, plenty of it.
Bread and grains flare things up but consuming good fats helps.
Sorry you are in so much pain, I know how you feel but movement helps as crazy and counter-intuitive as it sounds. Yoga always makes me feel great.
Wishing you luck.2

Maybe get an Xray - It might be a bone spur as well a PA.
I had excruciating back pain and it came to light it wasn't just my PA.
I know we are all different but it can't hurt to eliminate others sources of discomfort.
I have it too! Diagnosed at 10 yrs old. Actually just had a total wrist fusion surgery on the 31st. Feel free to add me!1
Psoriatic Arthritis, is beating me down. Skin and now joint problems. Hopefully I will be taking Cosentyx soon.1
First day of Cosentyx. Hope this will help, so i can get back in shape.3
I was just diagnosed with Psa. I was supposed to start Methotrexate a few weeks ago but after reading up on it, I’m afraid to put in my body. I’m hoping a more natural approach will help. How’s your new med working out?0
