I am currently using Stelara for my psoriatic arthritis, and after the two start-up doses, I am quite happy with the results. The skin on my feet is about 80 percent clear, which is wonderful. The joints of my fingers and toes don’t hurt nearly as much as the did prior to starting Stelara.
The one thing I was left with, though, was the burning sensation. I couldn’t stand it, especially at night. My primary care physician started me on Lyrica, and it is amazing. In less than a week, it started to work, and there is virtually no burning sensation at all.
Editor’s Note: Lyrica is prescribed for nerve pain.
