Coping, treatment

I've recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. I've been given methatrexate, naproxen and gabapentin, It's been 9 weeks, I've not noticed a change yet accept
my arthritis worsening. I'm being patient though! 😂

Stay strong and focused on believing it’s all going to be ok and this will help. I have had fibromyalgia for 15 years pain on and off but I fight with my mind winners never give up 🥰

I also have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia it is a pain in the ass I am on pregablin which does help with the pain and I am due to go on humira in 4 weeks so we will have to see what happens but for now the pain is horrible in my hands and fingers they are locking up and sometimes can’t even hold a pen to write.
Keep strong we are all in this together you are not alone 😜👍
