I was diagnosed 5 years ago and have been on Plaquinil. My initial diagnosis was cutanious lupus but my rheumatologist codes it systemic. I do pretty good most of the time but for the last few weeks I have had allergies which is not unusual but I get a sore throat off and on......sometimes hurts alot and sometimes feels like ear pain and headache. Is this something else or Lupus? The MD gave me a nasal inhaler which does seem to help but when the sore throat kicks in............it hurts. Then it will go away. Anyone else have this?
