Insomnia and Psoriasis

Posted on May 18, 2018

Many members of MyPsoriasisTeam struggle with insomnia. “Between itching from psoriasis and pain from psoriatic arthritis, I’ve been getting three to four hours a night,” reports one weary member. It’s like a “hamster wheel” says another: “Not sleeping [leads to] stress, itchy feet, sore joints and off we go again.” Sleeplessness can be frustrating but there are strategies that can help you.

Hi Lisa! I thought about trying a cbd cream as well. May I ask which one you are using? And is it a cream or salve?
