I have psoriasis and an another auto immune disease. Tell me what to do next.

I just had a zillion zillion tests done while I was confering with doctors about my carpal tunnel surgery and I have psoriasis and another auto immune disease and a couple other things I won't go into.  I'm a mess mentally. The psoriasis is extremely mild. I had a small patch on each arm and thought they were from touching wild plants or masses of insect bites, etc.  They were very painful and my elderly neighbor kept entertaining me with old folks' remedies, including the mild bleach solution for poison ivy, which burned like crazy and left it numb for hours.  I don't know what to do. They told me to see a specialist and one of the staff told me to try the anti- inflammatory diet, which will be hard because it eliminates the foods I love most.  However, if that's the way it is, then that's the way it is. My brothers all have food allergies to things they like, quite common foods, so why should I be any different?              I dont know what to do. When you first find out, what do you do?
