I have psoriasis

Hello. So i suffer from severe plaque psoriasis. I have been on humira for approximately 3 months. I thought i was doing ok on it but in the past few weeks i have noticed pain in my hands. This past week i have been having serious pain on all of my joints. It is so bad that I have almost gone to the hospital. I also have a rash on my skin. I have never had joint pain before. I have stopped the humira. Will this pain wver go away. It is going from joint to joint. I am miserable.

That sounds really miserable for you. As if your psoriasis isn't enough to cope with! You need to contact the team who prescribed your Humira for professional advice and help. If you are really suffering you could go to a walk-in centre if you have one nearby or try ringing 111. I sincerely hope you get some help very soon. Hugs

Hi. Have you been checked for psoriatic arthritis? Or is the treatment just for psoriasis itself? If the latter, you need to get on to your doctors and tell them about the joint pain.

I feel for you. I have psoriatic arthritis. But the psoriasis side of things is pretty mild.

Hello. I did call my doctor. He is going to get me in to another doctor for the joint pain. I have never experienced this pain until recently. Is your pain in one place one day then go to another place the next day? This is just horrible.

Hello. Glad you are being checked for that. The pain can be awful. Mine started my knees, the achilles tendons and shoulders, then both hips, and one toe swelled up. I have psoriatic nails, so toenails fell off.

Also have it in my back and neck.

Hope you get sorted soon.

Yes, PsA pain can wander. It can also make you ache away from your joints because it can inflame tendons. Go to a rheumatologist asap, and call the Humira people. I hope they tell you not to quit the Humira: it’s also used for PsA.
