So, this is long overdue, an update on my overall health.
Good: I’ve lost 30 pounds (14 kilos) since I’ve been in the Philippines.
Bad: My psoriasis has developed into psoriatic arthritis.
The pain some days is unbearable. Some days not so bad. Currently I’m on methotrexate 12.5 mg / week, which seems to be starting to have some effect. I’m also on dolcet (paracetamol 325mg + tramadol 37.5mg) twice a day for pain management, and Arcoxia 90mg once a day for inflammation management. The pain never goes away 100% but at least is bearable.
The skin is still a problem, but I’ve been using a topical steroid cream which seems to help somewhat.
Anyway, let’s see how things go in the coming months. Hopefully it will get better with this new medication regimen.
