Is anyone else diagnosed with RA and Psoriatic Arthritis?

Does anyone else have both RA and PsA? I was just diagnosed with PsA last week to go along with my RA. I actually only have one spot of psoriasis. However, I tend to itch all over at times. Is this normal? I am also fatigued almost every day. The good part is that I am able to work part-time. 🙂

    Yes, @Dmonroe I also have both PsA and RA. I was diagnosed with PsA first, then they added the RA and Fibro later. How are you dealing with the double diagnosis? I was pretty upset at first and have had quite a bit of difficulty finding the right medicine that might work for both. But I’ve since kind of “accepted” it… thinking that I’ve always had the pain, now it just has several different names because of where it is located. I know it can feel difficult sometimes when you think about what the future looks like with both diseases as opposed to just the one.
    Like you, I do tend to have many random itches, kind of all over and just a few “psoriasis” spots. I do also tend to get the typical RA nodules as well. If you haven’t checked out our sister site, https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/ you may want to check it out as well. I’d love to chat with you 🙂 -Leanne, Community Moderator

    Yes! I feel that my PSA is far worse based on symptoms. Numb and slightly swollen feet along with the same symptoms as plantar fasciitis. My left ankle and calf always hurt. My fingers wrists elbows are affected but more so in the muscle, ligaments, tendons then the joints. RA semester be more specifily in the joints.
