Insomnia is an overlooked symptom of psoriasis. In one study, researchers found that 25 percent of people with psoriasis experienced clinical insomnia compared with 10.5 percent of people without the condition. Lying awake can increase stress, which can cause more itching and worry. Learning to manage sleep issues on top of psoriasis is easier with peer support.
