The cause of psoriatic arthritis is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to genetic factors and the immune system. It is more common in people with psoriasis, but not all people with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis.
Symptoms of psoriatic arthritis can vary widely but may include joint pain, swelling, and stiffness, as well as fatigue and skin changes such as red, scaly patches. In some cases, psoriatic arthritis can also affect the eyes and cause inflammation in other organs.
Treatment for psoriatic arthritis typically includes medications to manage pain and inflammation, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Biologic drugs, which are designed to target specific components of the immune system, may also be used in some cases.
In addition to medication, lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise and weight management can also help manage symptoms of psoriatic arthritis.
Early intervention is important to prevent permanent joint damage and improve outcomes. If you experience persistent or severe joint pain, swelling, or other symptoms associated with psoriatic arthritis, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
