I started Otezla 3 months ago. I have had numbness and pain in my hands and arms for at least 5 years. Been to many doctors and therapy for years. I finally ended up at an Arthritis doctor and he put me on Otezla. I experienced flu symptoms for three weeks but they went away. This week, week 13, I started the flu symptoms again and some weight loss. I didn't see or feel any improvements ... Read More

I BEG YOU to speak to your doctor first. I know people mean well (mostly). There are some trying to sell their snake oil. But it's fee and far between. But some of the suggestions can harm you. Can put your health at risk. Can put you in the hospital. And the number one fact to keep in mind: There is no cure for Psoriasis. Anyone who says they have a cure is full of 💩💩💩💩💩 And yes ...

My Story of dealing with a lifetime of very thick plaque psoriasis and how Otezla daily for 5 months non-stop (with all its crazy symptoms) put my psoriasis into remission for 10 months now. Something inside told me when the side effects (migraines, nausea, diarrhea, etc. that I was mentally prepared for, read about - came on) not to give up! In my 2nd month of taking it, my scalp ...

I was told after 90 days I'd get insurance again. Well, I started on may 15th and still nothing. I am about 75% covered in plaque P. Cold weather is coming and the itch fest is already started. I have a bottle of methotrexate sitting ... Read More

He drained about 40mls of fluid and stated me on sulfazalznine and told me that it was inflammatory arthritis ... Read More

So, I just got back from my latest visit to the rheumatologist. I reported that my hand pain had evolved into some numbness in my thumb and first three fingers of my dominant hand. Immediately her eyes got wide, and she said it sounds like carpal tunnel. I did not see that coming! However, when I looked it up, it did say in some places that carpal tunnel can be caused by rheumatoid ... Read More
