You say you are taking plaquenil but then the rest of the paragraph talks about
what prednisone would do? Are you taking plaquneil, predisone, or both?
I'm with PattyLatty - the pcp should stick to general medicine and let the rheumy deal with the auto-immune, fibro, lupus-symptoms, and such. The rheumy should be the leader now.
I only see my pcp for an annual overall physical, everything else I take to the rheumy.
