Our Facebook live session
With the launch of our psoriatic arthritis animation we recently ran a Facebook live Questions and Answers session.
On the day, we had rheumatologist Benjamin Ellis on hand to answer your questions from a specialist’s point of view. We’ll also had people with psoriatic arthritis to share their own experiences of the condition.
BBC TV presenter and journalist Julian Worricker, who has psoriatic arthritis himself, has also written about how it affects people in different ways and to different extremes.
