I too have this ear pain and never related it to Lupus, and cannot remember if the mouth sores were present at the time i have the ear pain. Mine usually starts out feeling like an infection. the side of my face will be sore to the touch, and ache, and my ear hurts, and sometimes there is sore throat. this has been happening for a long time.
But no mouth sores in over a week. It would be such a blessing if those sores would not come back. to be able to eat in peace and without pain would be wonderful. maybe plaquenil is working its magic
I am learning so much by going to different pages of new topics, and finding more symptoms to tell to my doctor. Be they lupus related or not, he will decide I guess. but if this plaquenil is taking the mouth sores away, who cares if it is lupus related or not?
