Living with psoriatic arthritis
My name is Rose, and my psoriatic arthritis progressed quickly. In about 8 weeks, I went from having one tiny spot of flaky skin to having difficulty doing the things I used to do. At first I thought it was just my skin symptoms that made it hard for me to move, but my doctor told me it was my joints too and that I had psoriatic arthritis.
Results with REMICADE®
There was a year where my skin and joints were really bad. I couldn’t lift my arms. I could hardly even get up the stairs to go to the bathroom. Then my doctor suggested I try REMICADE®. I knew it was working when I just got up and walked to the bathroom. I didn’t have to hold on to the wall. I could just get up and walk.
My life with REMICADE®
My joints don’t hurt as much anymore, my skin is clearer, and my doctor says I haven’t had any further joint damage since I’ve been on REMICADE®.
Now I can do things again. My husband and I love to travel, and one of my favorite things to do is just go out and walk in a beautiful park near where I live. These are all things I couldn't have done without REMICADE®.
