10 Psoriatic Arthritis Symptoms-2

Age and gender

Psoriatic arthritis can show up at any age (even in children), but it appears most frequently between 30 and 50. There are five types and men and women are equally likely to get it.

About 1 million people in the U.S. have psoriatic arthritis, but there’s no single blood test for it. (There are more than 100 kinds of arthritis and joint-pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, gout, degenerative joint disease, and bursitis.)

The most common is osteoarthritis. About 27 million Americans have this type, which is caused by wear and tear of the joints, not an immune reaction.
