  • Hi Sue, I'm also Sue, from the US. So now we are:

    Sue and Sue

    and we are 2.

    Yes, bad rhyme.

    The point is I'm saying hello! Welcome to our community! I see you're a Suzanne and I'm a Susan, so we aren't exactly alike. I hope to see you around here again. 'Bye for now.

  • Not a bad rhyme at 7am..lol

  • Hi my name is michaela.

  • Hi my name is Yvonne and I live in Edinburgh. I was recently diagnosed with psoriasis but probably have it for years also PsA and COPD so there isn't much they can give me

  • My name is Ross from Scotland, really looking for any help and advice to deal with both my psoriasis and my PsA. I'm in my mid 30's and have very persistent psoriasis where thing only work for so long before stopping.

  • i'm lisa and I live in southern California. i'm currently going to ucla for treatment and i'm less than impressed with most of the rheumatologists I have had in the past two years. I've had psoriasis for ten years at least and was told all along it was just eczema (palms of my hands only) even though I told doctors that my mom, her father, and all six of her siblings had psoriasis. I'm a firm believer that there's more to this disease than they even know currently, because I've had a colonoscopy and endoscopy and was told there's no gut inflammation yet my stomach hurt so bad in the beginning along with my lower back. I have sclerosis of the si joints, facet arthropathy, inflammation of the eye, elevated esr and crp, and tons of other acute phase protein elevations like d dimer and troponin, protein in my urine, I did have an elevated ana in the beginning but it's since been negative, I also have had an enlarged spleen, an enlarged heart at times, and thyroid and lung nodules. I had pleurisy as a twenty year old and lots of pneumonia. the fatigue can be overwhelming. what I have found to be sad is that so many doctors have wanted to say "you have osteoarthritis" but they can't account for all of the other issues while I've also had doctors say "you have psoriatic arthritis." I'm sick of going to doctors and being told "this is as good as it may get" or "well you look good" and one even said "be thankful you don't have cancer." some days cancer would be a welcome thing as bad as I've felt....at least you're going to get better or you're going to find peace.
