I think I have PsA

I think I have PsA. With recent joint pain.. doc is beginning tests and RA was first. But in researching, it didn’t really fit. But all the symptoms of PsA do. Down to cataracts that appeared outta nowhere. Can anyone chat with me about my experience and compare to theirs?

    Also my fingernails have ridges vertically from bed to tip but not horizontal. Toenails are more recently splitting…like top layer splitting off top…not breaking fully

    Yes. I have psoriasis. I had full body issue during hemodialysis. I left hemo and did peritoneal dialysis for 3 years and it disappeared. When I went back on hemo dialysis it came back but primarily on scalp. I thought it must be an allergy. But it is diagnosed as psoriasis. I have an appt with rheumatologist in july

    Hello @outsidetheparker, I’d be happy to speak with you a little bit about my diagnosis experience and kind of compare a bit with what you have going on. I have both PsA and RA, with PsA being my first diagnosis. Have you had any psoriasis, questionable rashes, or odd nail pits/ridges? Are you working with a rheumatologist or your primary care doctor? -Leanne, Community Moderator
