I thinnk I panicked yesterday. I have always worried about plaquinil hurting my eyes, and then when the pain was there I assumed it was the plaquinil. It is gone this morning however, so it must not have been the plaquinil.
I have seen an opthamoligist. Last month. She was not very reassuring with her exam. But she said she would use it as a standard, and would be able to tell next time she checked my eyes in six months. And that has been playing over and over in my mind also.
I have these sores in my mouth that spread sort of like an infection. and they sometimes spread to include my head. And since it is gone this morning I am assuming that is what it was.
Thank you for your response

Hey Hippo mom,
It wasn't so much what she said as how she said it. She seemed to think that my eye exam should have been better than it was. I know I did not pass the color alignment test, the tech told me. but I never had an exam before I started taking plaquinil, so they have to use this one for future reference.
I did look up on the internet and found that light sensitivity was reason to call the doctor immediately.
So I will call him tomorrow, and see what he says to do. It won't hurt to call.
thank you for your support.
And I might just be a worry wart";)
