About a year ago I got psorisis out of no where. It became severe in less than 2 months. Pain started shortly after in my left ankle. Swelling got terrible and I could hardly walk. They put me in a boot and said that should help. Mean while the pain had started getting bad in my right elbow up to my shoulders and down to my pinky. They said it was tennis elbow and put me in a wrist brace for 2 months. The boot came off and the brace and pain was still there. Eventually it travelled to my other foot causing my third toe to swell terribly, and now both my hips. Walking is very painful especially in the morning or if I have to get up to use the rest room in the middle of the night. The pain in my arm is bad enough to keep me from straightening it anymore and I wake with my pinky bent not able to move it for a while. I am so upset and feel like the medical community has given up on me. I use to be very strong and able to do anything, now my quality of life is zero. I cry all the time and am tired of complaining about my pain. Please give me something to go on.

  • Hi. I'm so sorry about your pain.Do you mean you have psoriatic arthritis? What's the official diagnosis? Do you have accompanied skin disorder (psoriasis)? Do you feel pain constantly?
