10 Psoriatic Arthritis Symptoms-4

Joint trouble

People with psoriatic arthritis may experience stiff, painful joints that are red and warm to the touch. Morning stiffness can be a particular problem. Such joint problems can be mistaken for rheumatoid arthritis, which is also caused by an autoimmune attack, says Dr. Husni.

Like other autoimmune conditions, symptoms tend to flare and subside, only to flare again later on.

Psoriatic arthritis is incurable, but treatable. Symptoms can be mild or severe, and may lead to joint destruction, which can require joint replacement surgery.
