What Are Symptoms of Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic arthritis symptoms will ebb and flow. It is possible that they can improve with proper treatment, but and can ultimately come back in forms of remission throughout those same treatments. Managing the disease though will help the progress of the disease effectively. Symptoms are also very similar to rheumatoid arthritis, but below are some that will help determine the difference between the two:
- Swollen finger & toes – Swelling and deformities in your fingers and toes can also develop before symptoms in your joints appear
- Foot pain – Achilles heel and the sole of the feet can be in pain due to this type of arthritis. It will attack the points where tendons and ligaments, but it’s especially important to pay attention to these areas
- Lower back pain – Spondylitis can develop as a result of psoriatic arthritis, which affects the joints between the vertebrae and between the spine and pelvis.
