Psoriatic arthritis

Feeling a bit sorry for myself as, after burying my head in the sand for a long time over various minor symptoms, I’ve been diagnosed with PsA. On X-ray, I have joint damage in my fingers - with a couple that don’t bend really at all (what finally prompted me to seek help!) - and just feel so stupid for not seeing Dr sooner. Bit of a pity post, really, but if anyone has any experience of PsA I’d be interested to know to what extent treatment has slowed or halted joint damage. Thanks.

My mum has this, had it about 18 months now she is on Humira injections once a week which help. Also cut out inflammatory foods in her diet.
