Subject: Re: Psoriatic Arthritis
Robin - I had undiagnosed non-specific arthritis from about age 18 - now age 47.
This developed to be Ankylosing Spondylitis - impacting my back, hips and rib cage.
The pain that I hate the most is the sacro / lower back / hips (my personal story is posted on the other link above). I haven't had a bad flare for about 18 months now - went for some xrays at the time nothing showed except spurs on rib cage / back.
The pain I had was like a stickiness in the tendons where my upper leg joined my buuutocks like a hot sore glue - with hip stabbing pains.
I think PSa and AS have some similarities.
I hope you can find some relief soon!
