Auto immune issues can definitely rear their ugly heads after trauma like yours. I've experienced similar and if we already have one type of auto-immune disease we can easily take on another.
What kind of doctor ran your tests? Are you seeing a rheumatologist? I haven't seen fatigue as a symtpom of psoriatic arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis does have the fatigue with it and can take some time to show up properly in your blood work. I would encourage you to ensure you are seeing a good rheumatologist for a thorough work up. They can also determine if you might have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or fibromyalgia which can cause similar symptoms.
Yes I have seen them all. Rheumatologist, Dermatologist, Sleep expert. All are working to try to figure this out. Have had RA, FANA, LYMes, ETC and all neg. My sed rate was elevated at one visit and then boarderling next one so possible some imfamation somewhere. Wondering if I do have PA but just not showing much for symptoms yet. I will be getting off the Methotrexate in about 3 months and worried about relapse of the Uveitis. Guess we won't know till then. My sleep doc is sending me for second opinion now since last meds didn't do much for the Fatigue. Will let him know about the ? of PA then and see what he says. I think I am goingn to be one of those people that the docs just don't know what to do next and will just have to live with it . thank you so much for your response. I am wondering about Fibromyalgia at times but without the pain not sure that could be it. thank you again. I will keep watching this forum to see if someone else may have ideas or if I can help others.
Taking so many stimulants can cause an adverse reaction where you actually become more tired over time. These stimulants, like Adderall, and Provigil also suppress your immune system and it's harder to get oxygen, or breathe, at least for many people.
My son, who is also on stimulants, also has real problems like you with Psoriasis .
Also keep in mind that this may be a fungal infection, as that can make you feel terrible. Fungal infections is something American doctors do not know much about and tend to ignore. Sometimes, they even treat the symptoms with an antibiotic which makes it much worse? Kat
thank you all for you comments. I see the sleep specialist again today and will be telling him Adderall seemed to have helped with the morning and evening excessive fatigue but did nothing with the cognitive issues. Probably goiing for another opinion. Waiting for Rheumatologist to call back to comment on the new stiff / achy fingers and knees to comment. Day by day I guess. If I find a miracle cure I will let everyone know. Update soon for you and take care.
I met a woman in a group meeting who stated almost identical symptoms that you posted here. She was diagnosed as having MS (multiple Sclerosis). Please get a help from the right physician before you waste money in sleep specialist and others.
You can be tested for the gene hla-b27, which will show up if you have psoriatic arthritis. I'm not sure if it always shows up, but I knows it shows up some of the time. This might help you out.
