Hi alli sunshine,
There is an autoimmune disease called Psoriatic Arthritis. It's basically Psoriasis combined with RA. I have a friend with it. Definitely talk to your GP or rheumy about that possibility. Psoriasis and Eczema are autoimmune. I had Eczema badly about 10 years before my diagnosis came along. Once the immune system is suppressed, it usually goes away. But if you have PA, it tends to stick around.
Hope you get some answers soon!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in to be content.Phillipians4:11-13
