Glad to have found some support. I am 36 and have both psoriasis and PA. Used to use cortisone injections but have had to stop due to it effecting diabetes. I'm so upset with fighting for pain management and being made to feel as though I am a drug addict! Even if that were true, I would still be deserving of pain management! Currently I am plagued by worsening joint damage and extreme pain in my hands. The only relief is dilodid pain medication used at night to manage pain enough to sleep.
The best relief I have is swimming in fresh water then laying on hot rocks or sand. However, that is only possible in the summer months in my area. Should be a prescription for permanent vacation! Lol.
