51 yo female with history of ulcerative colitis, (I'm on their forum), and heading towards an associated dx of psoriatic arthritis. Thought my horrendous aches and pains were from Humira / Stelara (failed both for UC) but have now received likely confirmation of PA.
Lots of crossover in these diseases, so I'd like to see what people have to say. Any tips or helpful self care, etc.
I am starting on Xeljanz for the UC next week, not sure if that will address the pain (different mechanism than the other two, but they didn't help either!)
So far, this is not fun, and I don't like it one bit!
Thanks and stay well
