Knowing that psoriatic arthritis can decide to hibernate and not cause visible and painful symptoms for some time, how can we monitor it other than at the time of a flare-up?

How often should we do follow-up tests, X-rays and all that?

Basically, I know that you can be on the lookout for changes or evolutions and therefore avoid a lot of pain and suffering by anticipating flares and I want to know how...

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Bettyctis, thank you for opening this discussion! It can be overwhelming trying to keep up with a chronic condition like psoriatic arthritis. Let me tag other members who can possibly share with you!

Hi everyone, how are you doing? 😊

How often do you undergo follow-up testing to track the progress of your PsA? What types of tests do you have done? Are there any markers or things you track or look for in the results? How do you anticipate or avoid flare-ups?
