PsA: An Inherited Condition

Last updated: November 2021

I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in 2014 and am now on my 6th medication. It seems to wear out everything after a while. I still persevere.

I found that this can be an inherited genetic disease. My dad has it, but never treated it. Now my daughter is in the process of being diagnosed. Luckily early than me. Hopefully, she will not have the bone/joint damage that I have had.

Do you have a story about living with psoriatic arthritis to share too?
