... it seems as though that is what I have. I was diagnosed 9 years ago with psoriasis. About 9 months ago, my finger became swollen and had severe pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. After testing negative for arthritis with blood work and seeing a specialist, neither could tell me what was wrong. I have all the symptoms. Unfortunately right now I do not have health insurance as I am a nanny for my sister's two children. Lately, 4 of my toes on my left foot are swollen and the ball/heel of my foot is very tender. I also have a small cut in my skin of my big toe that seems it might be getting infected. Does anyone know if this is also a symptom? I guess I'm just wondering if this is going to get a lot worse if I don't get it treated ASAP. It already hurts when I walk now, especially in the mornings. I'm just afraid it will get so bad that I won't be able to pick up my nieces who are 1 and 3. If anyone could help that would be great
