Hi All, Just got back from my annual eye exam. Everything was all clear, no toxicity or damage from the plaquenil or prednisone, YEAH! I sometimes get weird underwater vision in my peripheral vision and I asked him about
this. He said that it's the begining of a migraine headache. I don't get the actual skull busters I used since starting propanolol, only about
once a month or so, but apparently I'm still getting the migraines, they just don't hurt. I thought that was interesting and worth passing along. All in all it was a good check up, my near-sightedness hasn't even changed a bit in over four years and my eyes are in perfect health. Kinda like my PCP said that if it wasn't for my auto-immune panel, my bloodwork showed I was in perfect health. I'm pleased that I have no major organ involvement and that my eyes and blood all look healthy. It's just weird to feel this crappy and be told I'm in perfect health, oh, except for the fact that I have Lupus. Well, all I can do at this point is count my blessings, pray for the future and budget my energy wisely. Hope everyone is hanging in there. God Bless.
