I have completed the survey. I have noticed in some posts that some people don't seem to get the care they need. In my case Ican not fault the care and help I get, it was my OT who suggested NRAS.

I wasn’t allowed to complete the survey despite suffering excruciating foot pain because i have a diagnosis of PsA but not RA.

Hiya Clemmie. Going off memory, & I've slept since so I may be wrong, but on one tick box page doesn't it ask to select "I have RA" or "I do not have RA"? Would ticking the "do not" box not be appropriate for conditions other than RA? I do think it could be made clearer though, if this is what this option is for. Just thinking people who don't have RA or 'sister' disease wouldn't be on here or would bother with the survey. You could add that you have PsA in the additional info box at the end of the survey possibly?

I clicked that I didn’t have RA and it said I wasn’t able to participate.

Ah, so it wouldn't let you proceed any further? Didn't think of that.

Done. Thank you for this. I hope our input helps go someway to help enforcing the fact on our behalf that our feet are important & are commonly affected. Despite them not being included in the DAS 28 we would appreciate it if they were thought to be as important as presently included joints.
