Hi, I've just been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis, which I believe is similar to Rheumatoid Arthritis. I've been having several joint issues and haven't been able to run for a while now. I've just started on Methotrexate and hoping that in a couple of months things will have stabilised.

Is there anybody out there that has been diagnosed with either of these conditions?

If so, I was wondering how this condition effects their running, and if so how they manage it. Any tips or info much appreciated. Thanks.

Northern Exile has also just started taking methotrexate for an inflammatory arthritis. He writes an excellent blog and has continued to run.

I have RA I can still run & run distance but I lost all my speed used to run 7/8 min miles now 10/11. It’s hard and sometimes I can’t run but I just do what I can. MTX didn’t suit me but it works for a lot of people. PM me if you want.
