I have psoriatic arthritis. About a month ago I was given a depot of steroid and started on leflunomide.
I have sausage toes (something starting with D that I can't spell!) my toenails are a mess..they fall off, and there's swelling at the end of affected toes. My toes have become a bit deformed.
After steroid depot the swelling in toes went down, and I was in less pain and the general stiffness went...woop whoop!
I had bloods taken two weeks ago. I notice my inflammatory markers are on the up, which actually coincides with how I feel. I'm stiff, in pain (though bearable) and my toes are swollen again!
I'm surprised the steroid has worn off so quickly!
Does anyone else have toenail and tootsie problems? What do you do about toenails?
