Hi, I have suffered with this disease for 10 years beginning in the armpits and now on my groin. I have tried over the years to find a cause as have most who have experienced HS. I have now begun to make a link to extreme stress prior to the onset of HS and am wondering if any other sufferers may have also been in a similar state in terms of extreme stress and anxiety, months or even years before it started. Could Post Traumatic Stress cause HS?
Please comment if you think it may be the case for you also.
