Brief Answer: medicines need to be adjusted Detailed Answer: Hi This is Dr Alok, Rheumatologist, from Delhi So at moment, she is on the diagnosis of hypertension, fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. She is on medication of these diseases, which I think need to be adjusted. May be she is having some other diseases also, but as per your history and investigations you attach, I agree with above diagnosis. Recurrent problem may be due to flare of the disease, I personally want to do clinical exam of the patient so that medicines should be adjusted accordingly. I would like to stress on history and examination of the patient because, in rheumatology, these are more important than investigation. Hope this will help, Should you have any quires, please don’t hesitate...
