What were your early signs of Psoriatic Arthritis?

Hi All,

I have suffered from plaque psoriasis for 4 years, the last 2 years I have been experiencing tendonitis in multiple joint areas, my hip, elbow and knee. At first, I put them down to gym injuries and my age (35), but I have been forced to rest for the last 8 months as I felt like I was falling apart at the gym, I planned on having a few months off and let my aches and pains heal, it has now been 8 months and I still have all the aches and pains, I don't seem to be healing! Which lead me to think I may have PA. I do not have any swollen joints or feel heat in the injured areas, I do however have 2-3 pitted nails. I have had my blood checked for raised inflammatory markers and my levels were good.

So my question to all you unfortunate souls who have been diagnosed with this horrible condition, what were your very early symptoms? and do you think what is happening to me is the onset of PA? Also, I'm not sure when people refer to their joint pain if they actually feel it in their joint or the tendons around the joint, mine is definitely in the tendons and my range of motion with joints is very good.

I have also read many articles from healthcare websites like medicinene (https://www.medicinenet.com/psoriasis/article.htm), mayoclinic (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...t/drc-20355845), everydayhealth (https://www.everydayhealth.com/psoriasis/treatment/), psoriasis (https://www.psoriasis.com/psoriasis-treatment), etc...

Anyways, I would be grateful to hear what you guys have to think about this, hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,
Jane
