For those of you who are on Plaquenil...Are you still having joint pain and stiffness? I began taking it back in May and just recently have noticed a decrease in pain and stiffness. However, as the day progresses and I do my daily activities the pain and stiffness return. I have an appointment with my rheumy on Thursday and will ask her about
it. I just wanted some advice from some everyone else!
One more question...Does anyone suffer from muscle pain, weakness, and loss of strength? I have noticed an increase in these symptoms since I was diagnosed with Lupus in May. I am a nurse and work long shifts and I have attributed these symptoms to that, but now I wonder if they are related to lupus? Any replies are appreciated!!!
Dx: SLE (4/07), IBS (1/99)
Meds: Plaquenil, Celebrex, and Lisinopril
