Oh so sorry you are having a rough time. So you are weaning down your Plaquenil but still on some Prednisone? My rheum always told me it is safer to stay on the Plaquenil than stay on Prednisone. Prednisone has so many bad side effects!
I think all things are possible!
I have been very fortunate after battling lupus for 10 years, that I was able to wean off of my Plaquenil, Cellcept and Prednisone about
18 months ago. I have done a Mediterranean diet/no red meat, rest, exercise, especially yoga, and I have a special regimen of supplements that I found works great. The key supplement that was integral in helping me stop these meds is Vector 450. It has IgY in it, an immunoglobulin, that supports your immune system. My rheumatologist approved it and now wants to do research on it because it worked so well!! My blood work no longer shows many signs of lupus, it shows I still have it, but I don't have many symptoms other than occasional muscle and joint pain and fatigue. But nothing compared to what it used to be. If I get extra rest and do some yoga, maybe a massage, I will be good as new.
If you want more info on my regimen, let me know!
I really want to share my success with fellow lupus sufferers, since I have come from a very difficult place to a very good place. And everyone deserves to feel great again :)
