I had gout on my ankle four months ago, and it was my first attack. I am 43 years old, slim, and exercise regularly. I wanted to ask if there are foods I should avoid (? bread, pizza) and is there a ‘safe’ alcoholic beverage.
Is methotrexate used to treat psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis?
Is ‘spondyloarthritis’ the same as ankylosing spondylitis?
I have high blood pressure and I was just diagnosed with RA. Will the high blood pressure affect my treatment? I haven’t had my appointment with a rheumatologist yet and am in pain.
I am experiencing a tight feeling in my chest that is very uncomfortable. I had a chest x-ray today and it is clear. I have asthma, but the neb treatments have not given me any relief. I have psoriasis and have recently had my index finger swell to the point where I coundn’t bend it. My brother is on remicade for psoriatic arthritis.. do you think this chest discomfort could be a symptom of psoriatic arthritis?
