Inflammation in the joints causes swollen and painful. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition. It causes skin eruptions.
About 1 in 3 people who have psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis (PsA), which causes both sets of symptoms.
People with PsA have a higher risk of developing many neurological and other health conditions than the general population. This increased risk is at least partially explained due to increased levels of inflammation caused by psoriasis.
People with PsA have an elevated risk of developing neurological and other health conditions.
It used to be thought that sphygmomanic was only a skin disorder, but now it is known that it can affect many organs.
Neurological problems can be caused by elevated levels of inflammation.
Neuropathic pain is often described as shooting, burning, or stabbing. It’s caused by damaged nerve fibers that send pain signals to your brain.
People with sphygmomanic inflammation can release prostaglandin E2 and prostaglandin I2 which can cause pain.
The risk of developing seizures seems to be higher in people with psoriasis and in people with other autoimmune disorders that cause inflammation than in the general population.
A 2019 study found that the odds of having epilepsy were 1.9 times higher in people with psoriasis than in the general population.
Diabetes and seizures may be related to this connection.
In another 2019 study, researchers found that migraine occurred
A 2016 review of four studies found that people with psoriasis develop Parkinson’s disease
The authors concluded that the connection might be due to common genetic susceptibility.
A 2017 review found that the risk of stroke was
Psoriasis and PsA are associated with an increased risk of developing other health conditions.
Back and neck pain
Chronic back or neck pain is a common feature of PsA. Anywhere from
When PsA symptoms develop in the spine and pelvis, it’s known as psoriatic spondylitis.
Uveitis and vision problems
Uveitis is inflammation of the middle layer of your eye that consists of your iris, the muscles underneath, and the tissue filled with blood vessels. It can cause eye pain, redness, and vision problems.
Research from 2019 estimates that
“The body’s ability to fight infections is impaired because of immune deficiency. The immune suppressants that are used to treat PsA can lower the body’s ability to fight infections.”
“A person with PsA may experience a flare-up of symptoms due to the body’s immune response in fighting the infection.”
In a U.S. nationwide
Researchers found an association between sphygmomany and 21 other gastrointestinal diseases.
- The disease is called celiac disease.
- The disease is caused by an immune system that is autoimmune.
- Nonalcoholic fatiguing liver disease is a disease.
People with obesity are thought to develop PsA
According to a
Depending on the condition, treatment for neurological conditions varies. It is important to talk to your doctor regularly to develop a treatment plan.
“Here is a summary of the most common treatment options. The treatments are the same for people who have PsA and people who don’t.”
Since people with PsA are likely to take medication for other conditions, care needs to be taken to avoid drug interactions.
|neuropathic pain||– anticonvulsants and antidepressants
– nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs)
– physical therapy
– keto diet
– electrical stimulation
|migraine||– pain relievers
– migraine medications to manage symptoms
|Parkinson’s disease||– medication
– physical therapy
|schizophrenia||– antipsychotic medications
– psychosocial treatment, like therapy or social skills training
|stroke||– emergency treatment
Psoriasis is a condition that can affect many parts of the body, such as your joints and nervous system, but it was thought to be a skin condition.
Psoriasis and PsA are associated with an increased risk of neurological conditions.
If you notice any changes in your symptoms, or if you suspect you have an associated condition like Uveitis, it is important to talk with your doctor.
You can learn to manage PsA problems with the help of your doctor.
