PsA or RA?? The choice is yours!

Last updated: July 2017

Following my family doctor's order, I went to see "the best" rheumatologist in my area. His conclusion - I either have PsA or RA. My RA indicator was not sufficient to be diagnosed with RA so PsA it is. My thinking? Either one is not good!
Have been on sulfasalazine for 18 months and find I am getting worse. Hurt always, joint continue to swell, and stiffness is constant.
I have what my family calls a "Pollyanna" attitude - everything is going to be fine, every cloud has that silver lining, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for! I truly believe these things and between that and my belief in a greater power, I will prevail!
