MRI shows degenerative arthritis. Have psoriasis. Do I have psoriatic arthritis?

I was told today that my neck MRI showed degenerative arthritis. I have severe psoriasis on over 75% of my body. However, I have never been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis . Could this mean I DO have it? It also showed severe stenosis ...I think he said at C6-C7. Anyway, my main concern is...should I see a rhematologist?

Thanks for writing to us.
The degenerative changes in the cervical spine that you have may or may not be related to psoriasis. You can consult an orthopedician for a proper assessment and treatment. Avoid using a pillow till then.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
