I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia many years ago. My main symptoms have been muscle pain, fatigue and cognitive issues. This past June I started experiencing migrating joint pain, and then in August, pain in back of my heels. My mobility has been severely affected by this. The Rheumatologist said this symptom is very indicative of psoriatic arthritis. I don’t have psoriasis, no visible joint signs swelling, inflammatory markers within normal limits. She said that even without those signs and… read more
She thinks the instertional tendinitis is the indicating symptom (migrating joint pain is also a symptom).

Does your daughter have skin symptoms of psoriasis?

My daughter has been diagnosed with psoriatis arthritis as well as fibro. Does he think the migration of the arthritis is indicative of psoriais?
I strongly feel that migrating arthritis is caused by low level common viral infection and am treating it with herbs long term.
I am waiting until the first of the year (due to insurance deductible) and then will request imaging. Hopefully the result of imaging will give the doctor some clue as to whether this is more than Fibro.
My herbalist is convinced fibro is caused by the epstein Barr virus. Treating me with bayberry long term (2 years evidently). the virus's hide away in joints etc so they would appear as past exposure and , as such, maybe causing the fibro.
My daughter had a rash over 50% of her legs when she was 12 which looks very much like pictures of guttate psoriasis. They said it was vasculitus which is where the immune response breaks down the lining between the capillaries and the skin so white blood cells can squeeze through. They recently diagnosed her with arthritic psoriasis. Her dad and grandad had that with the classic psoriasis scabby elbows.
