Sorry you are feeling bad again. It takes a while to become familiar with our body. Each of us has some type of warning signs that come on before or early in a flare. But . . . they are different for each of us.
The roof of my mouth feels scalded, I get a repeating pain that shoots into my ear (but its brief). I get extra numbness in my hands and arms and feet. My malar rash glows like my cheeks are burned. When I see any of these signs, I guard my energy, make sure I get enough sleep, good nutrition, etc.
But in spite of all we do . . . sometimes a flare just rushes over us like a big wave.
Your nausea 'could' be from the plaquenil. I always take mine with food and if it does bother your stomach, and if you are taking more than one pill, you can take one with b'fst and one with dinner . . . or lunch and dinner. So your stomach doesn't have the whole lot to deal with at once.
But the tiredness, muscles and achy do sound like a flare and not the plaquenil.
I hope some TLC will keep this from going full blown.
Keep us posted.
