In brief: Psoriatic arthritis
Joint pain, stiffness and swelling are the main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis.
They can affect any part of your body, including your fingertips and spine. No cure for psoriatic arthritis exists, so the focus is on controlling symptoms and preventing damage to your joints. Without treatment, psoriatic arthritis may be disabling.
