i've got lupus and i've recently started plaquenil, but my kidneys are often in so much pain that i can barely move. i haven't seen the nephrologist yet, but soon. until then does anyone know of any methods that might help the pain? also, anything with tylenol is out of the question, im allergic.

SO sorry you are in such bad pain. Have you asked your rheumy/pcp/nephrologist office what to do?? Don't be afraid to call and tell them the degree of pain your are experiencing. They may have a suggestion for you.

I'm so sorry . . . I don't know a thing about kidney issues. But some of the others here do. Hopefully they will see your post and have a suggestion or two.

Glad you found us . . . be sure to keep us posted!
