LOL. I certainly hope they don't affect one's brain!! Lupus gave my brain enough issues!
On a more serious note -- was on Plaquenil 11 years & Prednisone somewhere between 6-10 years. Just off Plaquenil totally about
2 months ago. I've never read anything about
either affecting anything that would show in an MRI - and I don't have the feelings you are experiencing. Prednisone & bones - yes, but if you took calcium replenishment meds even that may not have done damage.
I'm guessing that whatever you have going on is some current disease activity or damage, not a residual effect of long-ago SLE/SLE treatment.
Try not to worry, it just wastes time and doesn't affect the outcome. You have done the "homework" (made appts, etc) and now just try and forget about
it till the appts come.
