My wife has Sjorgren's disease and possibly rheumatoid arthritis, or no one really knows what she has, but it is autoimmune These are such hard anomaly's to pinpoint, they can be as menacing and deadly as cancer. There is no known cure for one's body attacking itself. I would be interested in your findings Bev, and will watch this thread with great interest.

This is where the cells see the skin as an enemy and attack it causing increased new cellular growth with externally is quite unsightly in raised red rashes which flake badly and bleed if they get too dry. I was taking methotrexate for a number of years, which I then changed to T cell focusing immune suppressants, which according to my oncologist did not cause my cancer but were almost certainly the reason it metastasized.
I think that the body is a many faceted beast and I find it very interesting that chemo stopped the psoriasis in its tracks, and with a few lifestyle changes I have made since dx that whilst the psoriasis has returned it is nowhere near as severe as it was pre dx.
