I have recurring bladder infections. In fact when I went to the doctor again, I asked for plaquenil, because I thought I was in a major flare. but I second guessed myself too, saying it was probably just a bladder infection. Lucky for me I asked for the plaquenil anyway, and got it. also blood tests were done, they were positive for Lupus, and the doc sent me to my rheumy, who seems to be a really good doctor, and listens. we shall see.
Somehow plaquenil seems to have taken away the bladder infection too. We shall see as time goes by.
i am just so thankful for it. I had a pretty good day yesterday, and actually got off the bed often. today has been even better.
Still have not called the doctor about that test I did with our grid. don't want to give up plaquenil. It has helped me so much.
thanks to all of you for being just as you are.
