Hello everyone, I’d love some opinions on some new pain I have. My feet are really bothering me. Seems like plantar fasciitis (bad pain on the heel daily, worse after sitting or first thing in the morning), but could it be enthesitis? Are they the same thing but one could be caused by PsA? I also recently started in with elbow pain which seems like tennis elbow, but could that be inflammation of the tendons there related to PsA? How do you find out if it’s caused by PsA or if it’s just plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow?
I’ve had psoriasis since I was a kid, but never terrible. Just a few patches here and there for years I’ve had nail issues. I saw a rheumy a couple years back and they said I probably have distal PsA because I have had a swollen finger. My inflammation numbers were elevated but not bad at all, I guess. That’s what she said at least. I also had osteoarthritis in my SI joint, Lumbar vertebrae & facets, & the balls of my feel. She wasn’t at all concerned about that because there wasn’t any inflammation present there at the time of scans. But, I was only 35, in good shape, and had no injuries to have caused that. She wasn’t concerned about any of it really and didn’t want me to have a follow up or anything. Do I bother going for this type of thing if it’s not joint pain or swelling? Any advice or help is welcome. Thanks!
