Hi, I'm new here. I've had psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for 11 years now. Most recently (maybe the last year or 2), I've noticed such an increase in pain in my hands and feet.
The pain has impacted work
I work full time in law enforcement and this new pain is killing my career. I walk with a limp
when I'm actually able to get up and walk at all. And I have lost all strength in my hands. I cannot grip or pull or do anything virtually with my right hand, and my left hand is starting to go the same route.
I'm scared that it will get to the point that I become bedridden. I'm much too young to not be able to move about freely. It has caused a great deal of depression
and I have been having some uncomfortable intrusive thoughts lately. I just wish it would go away.
