Coping

Is anyone having the type of pain with psoriatic arthritis that wakes you up in the middle of the night and covers your legs and arms? I was diagnosed with psoriasis at age 11, with psoriatic arthritis at 60, and I am now 67.

Hi Sue, Sorry to hear about the pain you are experiencing & that is awakening you through the night. One of the most recommended things I see here is taking turmeric capsules to help ease joint pain. Have you ever tried it? if you type it in the search field it will bring up all te conversations it has been in. I hope you can find something helpful to give you relief soon 💚 Nice to see you back!

Welcome back Sue! I don't have psa but this post reminds me that in the first year that I had psoriasis I also used to wake up every day with dead arms. I saw my GP about that and he just gave me giant painkillers. Maybe it was linked at the time without me ever realising it! That sounds very distracting, and night time pain and discomfort is very disruptive. If you check out the themes section there is a collection of posts about psoriatic arthritis, which could be of help!

Thank you! I will try the turmeric capsules. I am on pain meds now, and I still wake up in pain. It is as if my entire body cramps up, and I awaken actually rolling from one side of the bed to another. I have been getting up in the middle of the night and doing something that I would normally do after 6 a.m.

Hi Patty,
I have been on biologics for many years. My pain has gotten worse in the past two years, and my doctor changed my biologic two times in that period of time. Does your pain wake you up in the middle of the night?

I am itching right now. Even with biologics, I am in pain and itch. I am going to research this site and look to see if there is any type of diet I could try. Have you changed your diet in any way?
