Just diagnosis with RA after breast cancer new systom is itching at night at knuckles I just started methotrexate 2.5 x 6?

Unrelated: First of all, psoriatic arthritis and RA virtually never co-exist, if one has psoriasis and an inflammatory arthritis, it is psoriatic arthritis.

The one exception is psoriasis can be a complication of tnf therapy. ...Read more
