Does anyone feel very irritated due to PsA?

I take anxiety, depression, mood-altering medications but they do not help. I feel very agitated. Anyone else going through this and what do you do?

    Hello,
    I am surprised that you aren’t the one agitated. You have been through a lot and God bless you. The most important thing to remember is that it is not your fault. I have such a hard time convincing my friend, who lives with me. He thinks he is doing something wrong, he has said that “your such a b#%&^”. always something negative. He doesnt believe that I cannot clean more. Everyday I feel frustrated because I cannot due more. There is so much I want to clean, organize. I have pain standing to long, my hands have a hard time grasping and hurt when I use a spray bottle, and sweeping, reaching for something that is high up in the cabinet. I hope everything gets better for you. Than you for reaching out.

    Hello @Rebekaus I suffer quite a bit, especially with anxiety. I was prescribed 40 mg Prozac that seemed to help but not quite enough. I added CBD oil (vape and drops) and noticed a major change in my anxiety levels. I was able to drop down to 20 mg and am considering going off it.
    Sometimes it feels like every little thing could set me off. Here is an article that may help you understand the relationship a little better, https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/psa-symptoms/mood-changes/

    On good days, I’ve even added light yoga to help me manage stress, anxiety, and depression. I feel it has made a difference as well. I wrote an article that you might be interested in checking out here

    Overall, I think the most important thing to remember is to pay careful attention to what your body and mind is telling you. If you are taking medications and you don’t feel they are working, talk with your doctor. He/She may also suggest talk therapy to help manage the totally understandable feelings that come when you live with psoriatic arthrits.
