So glad you found a rheumy you feel confidence in. It does sound like you either have a bug or you are going into a flare.
The plaquenil takes several months to build in your system. So it will be a while before it really kicks in. Your doc was smart to start you on the 200 and then increase. This helps prevent tummy issues.
I hope you will post and update us on the feedback your doctor gives you today/tomorrow. There is a post in "Lupus Resources" about
Flare Care by Lynwood. You might be interested in reading that. Link in my signature.
