Psoriatic Arthritis

This is a condition where you have both psoriasis and arthritis (joint inflammation). In 70% of cases, people have psoriasis for about 10 years before developing psoriatic arthritis. About 90% of people with it also have nail changes. The most common symptoms are:

  • Painful, stiff joints that are worse in the morning and after rest
  • Sausage-like swelling of the fingers and toes
  • Warm joints that may be discolored
