My mom also has spinal stenosis related to the arthritis. She gets epidurals and the doc there told her she has DJD, not RA. My grandmother had arthritis, but my niece has RA. What is the likelihood that my mom's conditions are all related? How do we know if she has psoriatic arthritis?

Dr. thinks the only thing that would help me now is Biologics. thinks Remicade would work best. I am overweight, plus gained 40 lbs. in last year due to adding Prednisone to drugs. I take 5 mg of Prednisone (have cut in 1/2 since Jan.) 2 Voltaren daily 75 mg, 1 Arava daily. Tried both versions of Methotexate Pill & injection & both made me too sick feeling for days afterward.

Complete fracture of ulna 4 weeks ago. Also hairline fracture of elbow. In a long arm cast for 2 wks at which time x-rays showed healing. Put in fracture brace - within 3 days agonizing pain, feeling of bones moving. X-ray showed nonunion - in other words arm rebroke. Back in long arm cast for 2 weeks hoping to avoid recommended surgery.
