Hi Sticky,

I'm really pleased to hear that you have a diagnosis (or two! ;) ) I do hope that your endoscopy and GI go well on Monday and Tuesday and that you can now get organised with a treatment program which will help and hopefully improve things for you.

Kind regards,

Thanks Joelf
True enough and already changing course for PsA and rather than trying old school DMARDs it's back to biologics.
Got to get the inflammation back to earth, the predisone put a dent in it but it's still in the stratosphere.

As for sclero we shall see. Going down an unmentionable path that worked well for me for 3 years
Of course sclero was not in the picture not even remotely thought of. I am interested to see how that plays out, good or bad its worth a shot given the success I had back then. If not then will see what's the next step.

Hi Sticky,

Congratulations on your double diagnoses! :emoticons-yes:

I'm sure they were both long overdue. It will certainly help get your medical care back on track. Isn't it just a huge sigh of relief?

That it is!

They took two samples during the scope so must have found something. GI tomorrow then I'm heading home.

We felt the psoriatic arthritis (PsA) was for sure, my local doctor was stopped on that though, but I stuck to my guns and good thing I did.

Just too much going on that psoriatic arthritis could not cover.
