Should I Be Concerned?

Should I Be Concerned?

I am curious to know if anyone else has went through what I am experiencing? I suffer from extremely bad plaque psoriasis on my scalp and psoriasis on my body along with psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. I started taking Humira at the end of September (I've had 5 shots so far). The plaque psoriasis on my scalp has went away (only a few spots seem to keep popping up here and there), and a lot of the psoriasis on my body has went away as well.

Agreed. also try going gluten free. take probiotics and digestive enzymes to heal the small intestines. drink a lot of water. "leaky gut" takes a long time to heal. goats milk, blueberries, squash, saurkraut - foods that heal the intestines. we are what we can absorb.

your doctor can add methotrexate to your humira as well... make sure your doctor is always kept up to date on your concerns and pain..

I have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I am on Humira for the past 4 years. It helps for the patches in a minor way, but it will never go away and still need to use different creams daily. It has made a lot of difference to the pain that I had to live with every day and were able to cut down on a lot of other medication. To me, Humira has definitely made a big difference.
