Hi Rablah and welcome here.

I hope that others share their experience with this and hope you get in to see your Rheumatologist (and perhaps a Dermatologist) soon.

Yes, it totally means you should get into see a Rheumatologist.
You are having symtoms on outside because arthuritis is flaring up on inside of your body....
You need a change in medications or adjustment of your
medications...
I have been through this for 35 years. The best thing I have done was to see Rheumatologist.
My son also has psoriasis, looked really bad on his body, until he seen the Rh. He has gotton regulated on medication that is great for his body, He is doing very well no more psoriasis.
Me, I take Humaria, which is a persons DNA, Embrel (Mouse DNA)..The Embrel I took for a while, but had breakouts on my tougue. So currently taking Humaria Every other Week.
Hope this helps you understand how important it is to see Rheumatology, let them help you.
