I Am 33 Yrs Old. I Ahve Been Diagnosed With Psoriatic Arthritis With Enethesis Which Is Pain In The Ligament And Tendon Attachment. Also Fibormyalgia. I Was Started On Enbrel And Had A Seizure. They Took Me Off That Med Obviously. But ?able If Enbrel Caused My Seizure At That Time. I Am Always Tierd But At The Same Time Always Anxious And Panicy Feelign (that Yucky Inpending Doom Feeling) I Have Psoriasis Also In The Form Of Palmoplantar Pustular On My Soles And Palms. When The Rash Flares So Does My Joints.. Recently My Medial Aspect Of My R Knee, But Lower Than My Knee And I Can Not Lift My Leg Up To Walk Up Stairs Or It Hurts. It Is Swollen Also. I Can Bear Weight Just Fine Oddly. But I Have Been Having Hypoglycemia Episodes That I Get Headaches And Most Recently I Was Very Anxious, Sweaty, Weak, Slurred Speach, Blurred Vision And Started To Shake In My Hands Uncontrollably. I Thought I Was Having A Seizure Again, But No Loc. I Happened To Have A Glucometer With Me Because I Just Checked Someones Bs For Them. It Was 20. I Ate And Ate And Resolved Some...bs In 1hr Up To 70. But I Feel This Is Happening Alot (the Hypoglycemia) But I Just Never Checked My Bs. Maybe That Was My Seizure Before. 2 Weeks Before My Mentral Cycle I Can Not Move Very Well All Of My Symptoms Are Elevated. I Also Have Gained 30lbs This Year...(i Am Usually 125 Lbs) I Have 3 Children And With Each Child Noticed How Much More Exacerated My Symptoms Were. Other Docotrs Tossed Around The Idea That I Have Fibro With The Pa But I Do Not Think So.. Also I Have Chronic Constipation And When Constipated My Arthritis Stuff Flares Up...weird Huh?! Well Just Wondering If Anyone Knows Of Something That May Be Linked Hormonally To All These Symptoms...because It Is Weird How The Symptoms Are All So Differant. But So Linked Together So How.. Just An Fyi I Am An Educated Pleasant Women That Is Very Fustrated With Everything..now This Hypoglycemia..what Next??? I Take No Meds Now Since The Seizure In Feb I Am Off All Meds Except Advil As Needed ( I Take Daily Though Almost) I Am Taking Some Greens And Vitamins Sinc Feb And That Is It..maybe Noone Can Help Me But Thought Someone May Have Some Ideas. Thanks In Advance.

  • A few questions. Have you tried Humira? Have you worked around photocopiers? I ask because I believe my working with photocopiers may have caused or contributed to my Psoriatic Arthritis. Hope you are feeling better. Gary
