I wish

I can not find a physician that agrees with the psoriatic arthritis (PsA) diagnosis. My fingernails are all over the map. Some club, some spoon and some just split and tear off. Each time they tear off, they only grow back to that point. Slowly losing my fingernails! Gross...

I had all of my toenails removed by a foot specialist years ago because they kept getting infected and the only solution at that time was to remove them. I wish I could find a doctor that would not write me off because I do not have any RA makers. My thumb joints at this point are almost frozen in one position with little or no flex.

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