For the past month, I have been waking up in pain, particularly in my left hand which is swollen and makes it difficult to make a full fist. Although the stiffness subsides throughout the day, the pain remains. This is a flare, a term used to describe when arthritis symptoms worsen suddenly and intensely. The cause of these flares is unclear, with some attributing them to weather, food, or stress

Psoriasis is not contagious, unlike other persistent skin conditions such as shingles, herpes, or impetigo. It is a genetic condition that cannot be transmitted from person to person by touching or contact. In the past, psoriasis was mistaken for leprosy, leading to isolation for those who had it. However, initiatives like shaking hands with members of Congress were carried out to raise awareness

My diagnosis story is unique compared to most others. I consider myself lucky, although being diagnosed with arthritis in my mid-20s may not seem fortunate. I had been experiencing pain and stiffness for a while, to the point where I had to soak in a bathtub for half an hour and take four ibuprofen pills just to function properly each day. The symptoms became more apparent when I started a job

Work, a necessary evil that allows us to support ourselves and gives us purpose. Dolly Parton's song 9 to 5 captures the essence of the daily grind. However, working can be even more challenging for those with chronic illnesses, such as psoriatic arthritis. I remember the difficulties I faced when I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis while working an hour away from home. The pain and

More than 45 years ago, I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis. At the time, I felt alone because I didn't know anyone else with the disease. It seemed like people were ashamed of their visible plaques and kept their condition a secret. The only time I saw other psoriasis patients was at the dermatologist's office or a phototherapy center. It was during this time that I realized

Well, it's that time of year again, everyone. It's the new year, and everyone comes up with resolutions. I'm going to do this more or do this less. Yeah, I don't play that game. It's good for some, not really for me. But I am perfectly OK with setting some goals, or trying to do some things a little bit differently. I think goals give you a little more flexibility than very rigid resolutions. I

As a patient with both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, I have encountered various painful conditions throughout my life. Sometimes, I have to endure the pain by using my own form of meditation or mental diversion. However, I am always willing to take prescribed medications to alleviate the pain, especially when it hinders my ability to work and live fully. Let me give you a few examples of my

In the world of medicine today, specialization is key. This means that patients with conditions like psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and other related conditions will need to see various doctors for their treatment. In my personal experience, living in a city in California has given me access to a wide range of talented dermatologists. In the early stages of my condition, I was limited to the

It all began with a fall on solid pavement, causing me great discomfort. As I was crossing the familiar street on my way to work, I couldn't help but notice the odd construction of the crosswalk. The pedestrian median had angled concrete on the outside edges of the crossing, causing one foot to be on flat ground while the other was on an angle. Unfortunately, I lost my footing and fell, painfully

Earlier this month, I found myself in a situation I hadn't experienced in a decade: I had to see a new rheumatologist. For the past ten years, I had been seeing the same doctor whom I genuinely liked. He had been with me through thick and thin, guiding me through various medications and helping me deal with my bad ankles, knees, and knuckles. The foundation of a successful doctor-patient
