Hang in there a little longer. The plaquenil should make a huge difference. But know that it can take a few weeks to a full months to fully kick in. I know the fatigue and lack of any ambition is awful, but it will get better as the medication starts to do it's job. Just be patient for a while longer.
Make sure you mention how badly you have been feeling at your rheumatologist appointment, your doctor might consider a prednisone burst just to get you through this flare. Good Luck!
Take care, Fran
