Suffering Terribly With PsoriasisI have had psoriasis for about 17 - 18 years. About 85% of my body is covered. I am completely uncomfortable in showing it, as i live like a priest - even during the summer. I am the FIRST & ONLY in my family to have it. I have gone from one dermatologist to another and on to another. I have tried just about everything, topicals, biologics - natural - nothing works. Ive taken soriataine, stelera, humira, enbrel, remicade plus creams and ointments which all have done nothing. I almost gave up a year ago until a family friend, who also suffers from psoriasis mentioned to me that she is almost clear and anyone who comes up to her would NEVER know she has it.
I have recently changed doctors and I really had high hopes. All I kept hearing is that they could help...so we are now trying Methotrexate along with Cyclosporine and I have been on the cyclosporine now for 3 days and it seems to be doing me more harm than good. I have daily headaches/migraines, i feel achey in my hands, i am often very cold. plus other symtoms.... I have very low confidence in this treatment as everything else has failed me. I am afraid to give up something that COULD help me - atleast be more comfortable. I am at a loss, i dont know what to do. Is there anyone out there who has been thru this type of therapy who can give me something to want to live for?
