Any dentists or hygienists suffering from PSA?

Posted Tue 1 Oct 2019 4.50pm by toothlady66


I have not been diagnosed yet with PSA but feel I have many of the symptoms.

As a dentist I find my job does not help with the positions we take so not sure if this

is causing some of the pain I get.

I have had Psoriasis on my scalp for over 30 years and more recently on legs and elbows.

in the last 2 years I seem to suffer from ligament and tendon issues in my elbow and hips

and my ring finger feels tight and swollen.

it has not prevented me from working so far and I have rheumatology appointment in a few weeks.

Some anti inflammatories seem to help but I am reluctant to take them too much and I am really not keen on taking anything stronger.

have any of you having trouble with working?
