• stiffness
  • Spondyloarthritis (M07.2): This type is characterized by stiffness of the neck or the sacroiliac joint of the spine, but can also affect the hands and feet, in a similar fashion to symmetric arthritis. (wikipedia.org)
  • scalp
  • Some people have reported faster results using the Hair and Scalp Gel Extract as well. (nisim.com)
  • Crohn's
  • Psoriasis is associated with an increased risk of psoriatic arthritis, lymphomas, cardiovascular disease, Crohn's disease and depression. (wikipedia.org)
  • Crohn's Disease On April 22, 2008, the U.S. FDA approved Cimzia for the treatment of Crohn's disease in people who did not respond sufficiently or adequately to standard therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis On June 26, 2009, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) issued a positive opinion recommending that the European Commission grant a marketing authorisation for Cimzia for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis only - the CHMP refused approval for the treatment of Crohn's disease.

  • mutilans
  • Arthritis mutilans has also been called chronic absorptive arthritis, and may be seen in rheumatoid arthritis as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • First described in modern medical literature by Marie and Leri in 1913, in the hands, arthritis mutilans is also known as opera glass hand (la main en lorgnette in French), or chronic absorptive arthritis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Enthesitis can assist in differentiating arthritis mutilans' parent condition psoriatic arthritis from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, with evidence in plain radiographs (x-rays) and MRI as periostitis, new bone formation, and bone erosions. (wikipedia.org)
  • MRI bone edema scores are high in arthritis mutilans and correlate with radiographic measures of joint damage, although they may not correlate with disease activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Comparatively, with arthritis mutilans in rheumatoid arthritis, bone marrow edema often involves the subchondral bone layer, while the condition as a subtype of psoriatic arthritis includes a greater extent of marrow edema, expanding to diaphysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The bone edema in arthitis mutilans can be treated with TNF inhibitors in the short term: a 2007 study found that the bone edema associated with psoriatic arthritis (of which arthitis mutilans is a subtype) responded to TNF inhibitors with "dramatic" improvement, but the study was not determinative of whether TNF inhibitors would prevent new bone formation, bone fusion, or osteolysis (bone resorption). (wikipedia.org)
  • Arthritis mutilans' parent condition psoriatic arthritis leaves people with a mortality risk 60% higher than the general population, with premature death causes mirroring those of the general population, cardiovascular issues being most common. (wikipedia.org)
  • reactive arthritis
  • Their etiology was unknown until the 20th century and not treatable, like Lyme disease (in the Northern and Northeastern US), coccidiomycosis or Valley fever (in the Western US), and Chikungunya in India and a myriad of causes for postinfectious arthritis also known as reactive arthritis like, for example, the once very common rheumatic fever after Group A Streptococcus infection up to the rare Whipple's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • osteoarthritis
  • include Back pain Bursitis/Tendinitis of the shoulder, wrist, biceps, leg, knee cap (patella), ankle, hip, and Achilles tendon Capsulitis Neck pain Osteoarthritis Palindromic rheumatism has been theorized to be a form of rheumatoid arthritis. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • However, having psoriasis on the skin and nail changes are usually indicators of psoriatic arthritis. (psoriasis.org)
  • Many people report improvement of the skin in warmer months, warmer climates, or with increased sunlight exposure. (medicinenet.com)
  • You cannot "catch" it from a person affected by it, and you cannot pass it to anyone else by skin-to-skin contact. (medicinenet.com)
  • Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as the Koebner phenomenon. (wikipedia.org)
  • Suffering from the skin disease psoriasis and crippling psoriatic arthritis, detective novelist Dan Dark is in such pain in a hospital that he begins to delve into fantasy, resulting in several storylines told simultaneously: A film noir based on Dark's novel, The Singing Detective, in which a nightclub singer/private eye, hired by Mark Binney, takes on a strange case involving prostitutes and two mysterious men. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • Psoriatic arthritis can be particularly discouraging because the emotional pain that psoriasis can cause is compounded by joint pain and, in some cases, disability. (mayoclinic.org)
  • a 1995 questionnaire given to 557 people by A. Naser and others at the Brigham and Women's Hospital's Pain Management Center concludes that "changes in barometric pressure are the main link between weather and pain. (wikipedia.org)
