Neck Psoritiic Arthritis

Neck Psoritiic Arthritis

Has anyone experienced extreme neck pain from psoritiic arthritis? Because I have had psoriasis for last last 28 years mostly 75% is on my head, ears and developed this extreme pain in my neck about 8 months ago I have been diagnosed with psoritiic arthritis. This is really bad, hard to sleep upon waking my neck is so stiff can hardly move, it does get better through the day but is sore, then I dread going to sleep and starting the process all over. My doctor wants to get me on Humira but… read more

Update: Just went to my derm doc today. After some studies she told me she believes that because of the psoriasis being so inflamed across the back of my head that the inflammation is pressing against nerves in my neck. She did not say anything about "ablation" or any kind of injection she just said all the more reason she wanted to get me on humira as she believes this biologic will help me. She is appealing to my insurance.
Thank you all for your responses.

Is the pain at the back of the neck or round the side? I have pain in the collarbone area and wondering if this is connected to my PSA. I’ve been fairly clear since starting Biologic injections over a year ago.

Thank you for your response, my doctor has ordered an x ray. I did have previous MRI that 2 upper thoracic disk had disc degeneration, those are a little lower than where I'm having pain today. Hopefully I will learn something more from the x ray.

Whatever you do, DO NOT have ablations done. I’ve noticed that many doctors won’t call it by that name anymore, they just call it an injection. But you have to tell them EACH TIME that you refuse to have an ablation.
An ablation is when they burn the nerve. Well guess what? The nerve grows back each time, but with scar tissue. This will only multiply your pain 10X in the long run. I learned from personal experience, and then did lots of research.

Well you're the first person that I've come across that has a condition similar to mine.. I had severe plaque psoriasis from 1973 till about 2006 then all went away as I have was the scars, this was in 2006 in 2019 I've been having neuropathy in my feet that have got a little bit worse and my lower back start hurting me. You got it in your neck I got it in the back you're having neck problems now I'm having leg problems now pretty similar I think . I had a steroid epidural injection to my l5 s1 disc that went right directly into my spine I think that's what's causing all the deadness and pain in my legs and my hips now my hands speech issues now my only thing is that did that injection turn it already existing condition into a wildfire spread through me like crazy neurologically or is it to cause this is the answer I'm looking for we do have an awful lot of similarities though because my spouse enough you hear anything let me know and I'll do the same for you. Through a nerve conduction study I had come back and told me that the damage is permanent there's no cure for it but it's going to do to me neurologically I have no effect over whatsoever so let's just hope that it doesn't get my lymph nodes or kick these but lungs my liver my heart it stays outside that box. Here lately my toes and my feet and about halfway up my shins will go really red and then the toes will get purple and the feet will get purple and can't even fear for my legs getting taken but dog the doctors are working on it so we'll see what happens. Peace out
