Psoriatic Arthritis

Posted by lemdjm @lemdjm, Feb 27, 2017

I am a 74 year old female who has had psoriasis for over 40 years. The psoriasis was present on my scalp and ears in flares from time to time. I never experienced joint swelling and joint pain until recently. About one month ago I experienced an abrupt onset of severe joint swelling in my hands wrists, feet, and neck with severe pain. At first I suspected that it might have been related to my oncology medication, Arimedex that I began taking approximately 4 months before my sudden joint problems began. Testing ruled out Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. My oncologist did not think that the joint issues could be related to the Arimedex, however, he recommended that I suspend taking the cancer medication for 4 weeks while I was given oral Prednisone for 23 days (referred to as Pulse and taper). I am on day 22 of the Prednisone and the joint swelling and pain is no longer present. My oncologist wants me to resume the Arimedex, however, I am afraid that the severe joint pain will return. I am hopeful that additional diagnostic testing will determine the underlying cause of my joint swelling. If anyone reading this has had similar problems or any information related to my situation I would be interested in your comments. Thank you.

For Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Try giving up gluten for at least one month. That almost eliminated my Psoriasis. One piece of wheat bread or slice of cake and I get a plaque. I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis by 3 different Rheumatologist and have the HBL127 blood factor. My PA disappeared after a number of years of practicing Qigong. Its out there, I know, but it actually happened to me. Can't hurt. No one touches you or gives you anything to swallow. No drugs. It's a 4000 year old form of healing, and the forerunner of yoga and acupuncture. You can even receive treatments from a practitioner on the other side of the globe. Oh yea, I also survived a really rare form of sarcoma. I couldn't find a doctor who ever had treated a case.My oncologist searched the web for a treatment regiment. It worked but nearly killed me. I lost a lung and one side of my diaphragm from the huge doses of chemo and radiation. After my surgery none of the tumor or affected lymph nodes were still malignant. None of the surgeons in my doctors practice had ever seen that happen before. Between all the doctors I consulted with at the U of MN,, Fairview Clinic and Mayo, only one doc had ever seen that happen before. I did a meditation for healing cancer everyday for months and trongs of practitioners worked on me. I'm not saying that Qigong was what healed me but I would never rule it out. I would never tackle any disease without modern medicine and drugs but I would never do it without Qigong. If you want to know more, goggle Spring Forest Qigong. Don't pay anyone large sums for this service. I know plenty of people who work for pennies. I'd work on you for free. Some claim to be healers. I am a helper. I believe Qigong can allow your body to help heal itself and that someone like myself can rebalance your energy to help your body do that. This is complimentary care. Nothing more. It is not medicine. It is not a substitute for a doctor, drugs or modern medicine but many people believe, as I do that they have benefited from it practice. Love and Blessings.
