My wife is on Embrel for her Psoriasis. It has been a godsend for her. She had lived with the psoriasis all her life and has been glad to have some relief. It does lower your immune system's ability to ward off other things. She does get a cold alot etc.....

Hey Merfy!!
I just started a post about psoriasis & fibro. I have psoriasis too. I'm starting to wonder if I might have PA. I don't have psoriasis so badly that I need Embrel. So I can't help you with your question, but I can tell you I really understand how horrible psoriasis can be. It was awful when I was a kid- I had it all over my body-, but now it's just a small patch on my head and neck, I also have it in my ear.
I can't help but wonder if there's a connection between psoriasis and fibo.
You're post reminded me that I was curious about the connection.
Take care,
Patti
