Tuesday was absolutely horrible. Psoriatic Arthritis sucks.
Lets start at monday. I went to the office my fingers hurt a little. I put some pain cream on them and they felt a little better. Then came tuesday. they hurt. Pain cream. More cream. Pain pill. Then i put on my Arthritis glove just on the right hand. My middle and ring fingers were throbbing. All day long. I pushed my way through the day, trying to focus away from my hand but hey, i work on computers so yes that is my dominant hand stroking the mouse, click click, swipe swipe. It didn’t stop all day, i emailed my rheumy, he said next stop is the hand surgeon, i can get some cortisone shots, fair warning, it hurts like hell, i told him to sign me up, i now have an appointment on October 1st. Hurts like hell. Hmmm that sounds good, so it wont hurt as bad as it does now im thinking.
Well its friday now and the pain has gone down. Ill still see the surgeon, and possibly a hand therapist, as i found ring splints. https://www.arthritis.org/living-with-arthritis/pain-management/joint-protection/ring-splint.php
I’ll let you all know how i make out.

So sorry that you’re having a hard time! Do you think it’s the time of year? Not sure if you saw, but I’m really struggling with it too. PsA does suck!
Temperatures have dipped to 40 a couple nights so yes. I’m going to see the hand surgeon Monday so I may do the cortisone shots. Or not. We shall see…
