Covid Vaccine And Guttate Psoriasis

Covid Vaccine And Guttate Psoriasis

Does anyone with guttate psoriasis got their Covid vaccine? I spoke to my doctor, who says that there is a possibility that this vaccine can trigger the flare up. He says the choice is mine to take the vaccine.
I rather don’t take it, but it looks like I won’t be able to get on a plane to anywhere unless I have had two doses of vaccine, and I didn’t see my family in over a year.
Can people let me know if you had the vaccine, and whether you had any psoriasis related side effects?

Were You Scared By These Medicines At First?

Were You Scared By These Medicines At First?

I am newly diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I am still at the point of deciding which medicine to try first. Which of course will have a lot to do with insurance. To be honest these meds scare the hell out of me. I am hopeful for the improvement that may come, but the medicines can be brutal. Where you scared at first?

Fatigue

Fatigue

I have plaque psoriasis and lately I have been sooo tired. I am wondering if it is because of the Psoriasis. Does anyone here experience fatigue from this disease?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Hi. I do feel tired at most times. I have severe inverse psoriasis and when I have an inflammation it makes it hard to do daily activities and chores. That’s where a lot of fatigue come from.

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

I'm newly diagnosed but my arthritic pain is primarily in my lower back and hips. I have severe morning stiffness and sometime can hardly walk after sitting for a while. I also have sciatic pain down my right leg to my foot. These pains I've experienced everyday for the post 3 years. (Just started treatment yesterday with methotrexate) Now in occasion I seem to have sporadic pains in my hands and feet. There's never any swelling or redness they just hurt for no reason at all. Most recently I… read more

Hi All, I've Been Told I Have Psoriatic Arthritis In My Lower Back. Does Anyone Else Have This?

Hi All, I've Been Told I Have Psoriatic Arthritis In My Lower Back. Does Anyone Else Have This?

This has been diagnosed from an x-ray only and because I have psoriasis (am on cyclosporin) I think the Docor is just diagnosing that as it's just easy to say that
Back pain for over 4 months... I'm a regular at the gym (3-5 times a week)
The pain is constant and doesn't ease.
I've had physio which didn't help (acupuncture/tens machine/ massage/ ultra sound/exercises etc) nothing has helped.
I was also offered pain killers which to be honest is just an easy fix .

Maybe I'm in denial but I… read more
