Prolblems with autoimmune induced depression

Prolblems with autoimmune induced depression

Anybody else having issues with depression that you can't control since developing psoriatic arthritis? I've read quite a bit about inflammatory cytokines causing inflammation in the brain and potentially causing chemical imbalances. Any treatments you've tried with success for this depression?

Is light therapy beneficial?

Is light therapy beneficial?

I was told that tanning beds are good for those with psoriasis. I just joined a gym that has tanning and red light therapy. Can anyone tell me? Being very fair skinned I don’t tan, but I don’t have insurance and am willing to try anything that might help.

Humira Losing Effectiveness

Humira Losing Effectiveness

I have been on Humira for about 8 months. At the start it worked well, but for the past 2 months I have had flare ups. Has anyone else had the problem of a biologic that has stopped working? If so, what do you think caused it?
I'm seeing my Derm this week. I hope I can get some answers.

My Humira is making my psoriasis worse so my doctor is adding [[treatment:[[treatment:Neoral:58d19085e1f26a0906180bf4]]:58d19085e1f26a0906180bf4]] to my list. They don’t want me on Methotrexate because of my age (32). I already have a weak immune system from my Fibromyalgia, even weaker now with Humira, and… read more
