My PsA diagnosis journey
I had a nasty trauma, in 2004 and onwards, until 2006. I then started with symptoms of extreme fatigue, painful lower back. The tiredness increased, and now both knees, and hips, one elbow, and lower back/pelvis.
Due to me being a Nurse in the NHS, for 32 years, I tend to try and continue, no matter want. But something kept wiping me out, I got Graves. Treated for that, but joints got worse. Have only just been diagnosed, still very raw, and am very shocked. I get a very fuzzy brain, struggle when exhausted, from long days at work. My words come out wrongly, it has caused, many rows... I get confused and angry easily.
Were you ever misdiagnosed before being diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis (PsA)?
