Invisible Pain and Psoriasis

Posted on July 01, 2019


The pain associated with psoriatic arthritis is invisible, making it difficult for family and friends to understand the daily challenges of joint stiffness and discomfort. Meanwhile, psoriasis can be misunderstood as a contagious condition, leading to feelings of embarrassment and emotional stress.

The emotional challenges of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis can make dealing with the physical realities more difficult. Sometimes the best emotional relief is knowing there is someone who can understand the frustrations, pain, and discomfort involved with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. On MyPsoriasisTeam, a social network and online support group for people with psoriatic disease, members find others who understand.
