  • What’s in a name? - A personal view (Personal Blog by Ailsa)

    I’ve lived with sero-negative, inflammatory polyarthritis for nearly half a life-time, (39 years), which I refer to as RA. That was the diagnosis I was given at the time, but along the way I was told I had the HLAB27 gene which people with RA do not routinely have. This particular gene relates to Ankylosing Spondylitis which is what my father had from before I was born. Also in recent years I have developed mild psoriasis although I’m not sure whether this is due to the disease process or a side effect of the many drugs I have taken to combat this dreadful disease.
