Hi to everyone, as I am in the early stages of being diagnosed there is some excellent information here that is helping me understand what is going on with various aspects of my health. I have found it difficult to get any effective treatment despite asking the Dr's for light therapy and to be referred to a specialist. The reply is always they will consider that we(the Dr's) should be able to help with ointments and creams etc.
I have had patches of psoriasis on my legs, knees, buttocks and behind my ear for about 12 years. I had also been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome over 20 years ago. Like most, I have good days and bad days.
I have just had blood taken yesterday as I have been having pain running through the side of my left ankle to my toe joints, weakness in both wrists and joints of my fingers (mainly the middle joints).
I have had a long history of back pain, both lower and around my neck, after the last bout in my neck the physiotherapist told me I had sciatica in my neck, I never knew it was possible, I have had it running down my leg a few times but that was a first.
From reading some posts it seems that it is all autoimmune related, there is still hope that I don't have PA at the moment so we will need to see what the tests reveal.
I hope to be able to contribute to the forum whenever i can,
