    I thought I had RA, but when doctor saw my swollen toe she asked if I had any dry scalp issues. I told her just this spot on the back of my head that gets a little itchy sometimes. After looking at it she said, this isn’t RA, it’s PsA. Apparently RA does not affect the toes.

    Hi. I’m no doctor but from what I’ve read, RA attacks joints in a symmetrical fashion, PA is more of a reactive arthritis and can effect multiple joints throughout the body. Plus PA can have accompanying psoriasis.
