Hi

I'm glad I have found this forum for people in a similar position to us.

My wife has had psoriasis all her life, but seemed to clear up once pregnant with our first child, nearly 10 years ago.

In recent years she's had symptoms which looking back we're classic psoriatic arthritis, but in April / May had really swollen finger joints which finally led to diagnosis.

She's started on leflunomide which did nothing, no sides affects(good).

Doubled dose, this reduced swelling, pain etc and quality of life had improved dramatically to an extent where we thought a return to work was on the cards. Now we have high liver count levels, which have meant we'll be stopping the drug and looking to try other treatment.

I just wanted to have a little release of our story, my wife is my everything, younger than me and in her thirties. The future looks different, and well I'm reading more about the condition. I want to support, thanks
