Hard to live with 2 sources of chronic pain
Hi everyone, I have been in pain with my whole body for about 10 years now. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I am under pain clinic for that. I have been mentioning my hand being 1. painful, 2. swollen, and 3. fingers bending to my GP for about 2 years, but this has been put down to fibromyalgia.
Eventually, I went to the walk-in centre and they referred me to rheumatology. After bloods and joint injections (didn’t work), I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I am now waiting to have an education appointment so I will be told what psoriatic arthritis is and about methotrexate and folic acid and how to take them.
