I hope LDN will be added to the list of treatments here. It has been effective in treating a range of auto-immune conditions, including psoriasis.
I have always been able to control my weight, however since I have been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and been taking all of the related NSAIDS and biologics. I have watched my diet carefully, exercised when possible despite some pain from the PsA afterwards. Still unable to lose weight. It has moved around though from my upper body to my waist. I hate being fat.
I live in Exeter, NH and I am looking for offline support systems, I have family but can't depend on them. Most of my friends Live far away.
I have bad scalp psoriasis. It just use to be in a small spot, now it entire scalp and ears. Small spots developing on forehead and eye lids. Any idea's would be appreciated. It's driving me insane.
How long does it take to get some relief. I have been on it for 2 months. The 2nd month my Dr. Increased my dosage to 7-2.5 milligram pills per week. The first month was 5 - 2.5 milligram pills per week. I am desperate to feel some relief.
I am having spinal fusion of L2-L4 in my lumbar spine. I have PsA moderate to severe. My surgeon wants me to stop all meds for 1 month prior to surgery and 4 months after. My rheumatologist thinks that he is being too aggressive. She usually goes with the surgeon's recommendations but not necessarily this time.
I am afraid I will end up a cripple, unable to do my PT and in severe pain. I may need to change surgeons.
