In Mid30ies, psoriasis for years, no PsA until recently, only now have PsA localised in left jaw and have Hashimoto. Can the combo cause lymphadenitis?

Doubtful: I need some more information. PSA of the jaw joints is uncommon. Hashimoto is most common cause of hypothyroidism in the US; and does not directly relate to PSA symptoms. Neither PSA or Hashimoto are directly associated with lymphadenitis. It would be helpful to know where the lymphadenitis is located. ...Read more

But. With that said, i will say that the odds are, at the age of 24, it's not his heart. Nonetheless, chest pain should never be ignored. Have it checked out. ...Read more

Not likely: You may have fibromyalgia. You need to discuss this with your physician and possibly see a rheumatologist.

Unknown diagnosis, symptoms, treatment. Arm pain/ thumb pain/ jaw pain and fatigue proceeds schizoid effective disorder. Cycles back every few months.

See primary doctor: Arm, thumb and jaw pain can be related to cervical spine problems or inflammatory causes in the neck. They can be entirely unrelated to a schizo-affective disorder. You should have these symptoms evaluated by your primary physician (rather than by your psychiatrist) to get at the cause of the problem ...Read more
