I haven't even introduced myself yet and now I'm using my first post to moan-sorry!
I've recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis (I don't have psoriasis but my Dad did). I'm 35 with three children and currently working part time. I'm in my second week of taking sulfasalazine. At my recent appt (when I was diagnosed) at the end of March I also had an x-ray of my pelvis to check for arthritis there as cons said it was common in PsA. Have heard nothing more about this until today I got a call from the MRI dept to arrange a scan on my back when I wasn't even aware I needed one!
I'm really trying hard not to freak out but this has scared me as I have no idea why an MRI is needed and if this means the x-ray showed something and what that might mean. I'm trying not to panic about the future but it's so hard. I recently had a really awful few days related to a horrible cold so I think that has probably scared me too as things had been manageable prior to that. I have recovered since then but it's taken a couple of weeks.
So sorry to start off with that big moan but I know that people here will understand my fears!
