10 Psoriatic Arthritis Symptoms-9

Back trouble

People with psoriatic arthritis often experience back problems along with other symptoms, Dr. Husni says.

Pain can occur when there is inflammation and stiffness in the spine, neck, or pelvis, or in the tendons and ligaments that attach to the spine. About 1 in 5 people with psoriatic arthritis have a type called psoriatic spondylitis, in which the spinal bones fuse.

In about 5% of people, spinal symptoms are the only manifestation of psoriatic arthritis.
