Hi Gang...well ive had Arthritis since 26years ols...and now im errrrrrrrrr cough, splutter, im 40s summat lol.... ok ok il tellu my age, only becos I dont look it, so peeps tell me, and that I look a picture of health...im 49!! there said it.... seems most of us r around the same age, we do get the 20s and 18 year olds with it too....however, peeps do feel sorry for them when they mention that they r so young, but I was that age once, and it feels like forever ive had this condition, however, it has progressed much worse as ive gotten older...... Hey Shaz I asked my nurse Y u were on such a high dose, she mentioned it has to do with the Psoratic part that they r treating most? does that make sense?

Hello All,

I'm 59 now. Psoriasis started to flare up when I was 24 years old, just after I got married actually. ( Hang about...does that mean something..!!!! )

Arthritis started earlier this year shortly after I tripped up and landed heavily onto a concrete floor.
