… and evidently lack of pain is not a good indicator of disease control either.
I’ve just received a copy of a letter my rheumy has sent to my GP, with results of x-rays taken in January. The x-rays show erosive disease over the 3rd, 4th & 5th metatarsals of my right foot and in some other areas too.
If anybody had asked me to identify one part of my body that probably wasn’t much affected by PsA, my right foot would have been near the top of the list. It just doesn’t hurt that often, it works fine, it’s the left one that annoys me most.
There is now a question mark over how well Humira has been working. I’ve recently started the biosimilar, Imraldi - with luck it’ll step up to the mark.
I already knew that pain isn’t necessarily indicative of what PsA is up to and unfortunately these x-ray results illustrate that quite clearly. I really would not want the erosion to continue unabated, I’m pretty sure that badly eroded metatarsals would make walking very painful or even impossible.
