Psoriatic Arthritis? Psoriatic Arthritis is a relatively common form of psoriasis and characterizes patients who, for an unknown reason, develop arthritis in addition
to the other symptoms of the disease. What is psoriasis
and what is psoriatic arthritis? The answer, in the following clip. Psoriatic arthritis occurs mainly in patients who suffer from psoriasis,
but first, let’s understand what is psoriasis? Psoriasis is a type of skin disease that is quite common. It affects
approximately 3% of the population and is characterized by rashes
in different areas of the body especially on the elbows, knees
and scalp, but can also affect the skin on any other place. The rash presents as
reddish, scaly patches. About 20% of psoriasis patients
may develop arthritis. How can a psoriasis patient know
if he’s developing arthritis? The main symptom is actually
joint pain in different joints. The disease
could affect small joints in the hands and feet and could also affect
larger joints such as knees, ankles and shoulders. Some patients may feel
back pain, as well. Back pain associated
with psoriatic arthritis is characterized by
inflammatory pain, pain that awakens
a patient at night, causes severe morning stiffness
and can be alleviated by moving. When a patient suffers from psoriatic
arthritis, he will usually notice swelling and redness
around various joints. The “sausage finger” symptom
may also appear in which every finger becomes
swollen, inflamed and painful. Actually, any affected joint
could become swollen. It is important to remember that
psoriatic arthritis can develop even if the patient does not suffer
from psoriasis. For example, if there is
a family history of psoriasis, a father with psoriasis,
a son with psoriasis, and if the clinical picture fits
with what we would expect of psoriatic arthritis,
then we can diagnose the disease. It is most important to remember
that this disease can be treated and in many cases
can be put into remission and we can offer many methods
of treatments for this disease.
