Can PsA cause a sluggish Lymphatic system?

I wanted to know does anyone have a sluggish lymph system due to PSA? Blood work and had CT scan and everything is normal. My GP told me that it is due to my psoriasis. My lymph nodes are swollen where ever I have psoriasis patches. Of course, I will be making an appointment with a Rheumatologist because my joints in my hands and feet are swollen and I feel absolutely horrible.

    Hello ethomas,

    I have had psoriasis for 55 years and psoriatic arthritis for over 30 years. I have had things go wrong with my body that I can’t even pronounce. I remember my doctor talking about my lymphatic system year ago, but didn’t understand a word he was saying. I understand it better now with all the inflammation and stiffness that was all over my body. I know my doctor had me on a special diet and I had to take supplements along with a biologic and pain pills. Your dermatologist, rheumatologist and pain management doctors will become your best friends. Listen to what they say. We are here if you need us.

    Enjoy the New Year,
