They told me that I would be in a wheel chair by the time I was 40-50 I'm pleased to say I proved them wrong. Yes I have pain in a lot of my joints especially now in my knees but I put up.with it and try not to take serious medication. Give me paracetamol works for me. Not all the time. Xx

I was 30 when I saw my first dermatologist. And was told I have PS. I didn't know much about the disease. For years my joints would crack but I didn't think much about it. It wasn't painful. Then about 7 years later I separated from my husband which was a very stressful moment in my life. I was then diagnosed with arthritic psoriasis. I'm 49 and pain free with the help of my miracle drug Remicade. 😊

Hi, my personal experience is cutting out all heavy carbs this includes, bread, Pasta,Potatoes and Rice and dairy produce such as milk and creams. I switched to Oat milk, Almond milk or Coconut milk, The thing about eating lots of dairy is that they are packed with antibiotics and hormones, which are really bad for you, and the carbs are heavy in sugars. I didn't eat much sugar but I did cut out any other sugars that may have been hidden in foods. I eat eggs in the morning, large salads for lunch and chicken, fish or turkey stir fries in the evening. I don't eat after 6pm,drink copious amounts of water and cut back on tea and coffee. Herbal teas replaced them.
I take probotic tablets every day and other supplements. Psoriasis is an auto immune system disorder and only works as well as the food that is put into the body. If you eat crap you will feel crap. (sorry) We all have good and bad bacteria in our gut and if this is out of balance it can cause "leaky gut sydrome" which can cause painful joints, ligaments and tendons and can irritate skin, this making psoriasis worse. Eat "clean" and you should feel better. If you get time to read up on Leaky Gut Syndrome you will find you probably have quite a few symptoms. Hope this helps.
