At age 5, the participant was diagnosed with plaque psoriasis. At age 12, she was diagnosed with an uncommon and more aggressive form of psoriasis, called erythrodermic psoriasis. A few years later at age 18, she developed guttate and inverse psoriasis. She was also diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis at age 16.
For the past 11 years, the participant has experienced sensations of pressure with periodic sharp pains in her head. She also experiences daily persistent headaches. At times she also has double vision, cognitive confusion, and facial and limb weakness. She also experiences extreme pain that she describes as following a narrow path through the body. Recent scans have also shown some heart defects (myocardial bridge, aberrant right subclavian artery).
