  1. Yes! I live with axial spondyloarthritis/ankylosing spondylitis. In fact, this came first — PsO came later, although I am not entirely convinced it's not also Psoriatic Arthritis, as smaller joints can hurt sometimes. IBS as well. Thank you for opening up the convo! Anyone else?

    1. Hi Lisa. I also have IBS. I was tested for Crohn's disease but they found no evidence of it. It makes living with Psoriasis harder. Vickie W., Team Member

    2. Vickie, how do you manage your IBS? What triggers it and helps it?
