Do you know that psoriasis can also affect your joints and cause an arthritis (in 10% of psoriatic patients)? It is recommended that patients with psoriasis who do not have a diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) complete an annual PEST questionnaire (NICE psoriasis guidelines 2012), to see if you need a referral to a Rheumatologist. If you have not done this before, take this questionnaire now!
Psoriatic arthritis can be very disabling and debilitating if left untreated. Treated in its early stages, we can easily arrest progression. Who would be a better person to take responsibility for your health than yourself? Act Now!
