I was diagnosed in August 2016 with psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. I’m tired. I’m achy. My joints are stiff. I also have severe sleep apnea and need a new bi-pap machine. I am an insomniac now because of all this. Not to mention I have deteriorating disk disease in my neck and a pinched nerve between C6-C7 so my left arm goes numb as well as my hand n fingers. My hand trembles and I drop things which means I have to bend and squat which causes extreme pain in my back n legs. I’m about to just give up cause I feel that my doctor isn’t taking me seriously. Also, my immune system which used to be strong has been affected and I keep colds. Mind you that until a year ago I hadn’t been sick or even had a sore throat in over 10 years. Now I’m just worn down. My vitamin D is so low it doesn’t register so I have to take 50,000 mg a week. To keep my legs from cramping I have to take 1,500 mg of potassium a day which upsets my stomach. I have hypertension so of course I’m on BP meds I have anxiety and panic disorder so Paxil and Xanax have become a must. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. I’ve been trying to get disability for over 2 yrs with no result.
