Brief Answer: Answered Detailed Answer: Hi and thanks for the query Psoriasis is a disease of accelerated skin turnover. Hence it consumes a lot of nutients including vit B12. Vit B12 defeciency can cause tiredness, loss of interest and GI isuues like bloationg and loose stools in most of the cases. Constipation can be because of reduced intestinal motility ( lack of urge) or due to pelvic floor dysfunction ( feeling of stool not coming out / getting struct at the anorectum). The treatment depends on finding the cause and then taking appropriate corrective measures. Further depression itself can worsen constipation and a sense of tiredness and unworthiness Hence see a physician and get yourself evaluated along with a vit B12 evaluation. take some vit B12 supplementa and increase non veg / egg in your diet.

Doctor, Could you please suggest me good vitamin B12 Supplement which i can get in medical shop. I am a vegan and i ll take only eggs. My Muscles are also very loose. Even i tried doing excersies for my muscles, it is same. Some time i feel my muscles are tired to do any work. Mainly after lunch i will have such feelings. I am 28 but i am very slim and i feel like i am manly. For this reason only i did all the tests. Still nothing solved my problem.
