Thanks, Stacie. In an effort to figure out the stomach/flare culprit I stopped taking my Plaquenil last Monday - and I went all week without a stomach flare, even with taking vitamins and consuming dairy. However, I woke up this morning with a sore throat and low grade fever, red bumps on my face, extra painful places and a double heap of fatigue. I switched to brand name Plaquenil when I renewed my Rx last week - so I took the first dose of that tonight. Hoping my stomach will remain quiet and these other symptoms will go away.
Did your ANA ever go negative? I have read that it doesn't necessarily correspond to disease activity......but it must represent something?
