Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed with lupus 3 years ago by my Rheumat...daily pain, sometimes mild but most of the time severe pain especially for the past 12 months. 3 months ago, I went overseas to see another Doctor (did not have insurance) who after some blood work, explained that I have sharp syndrome disease but not lupus. I came back to the States and after more blood work, the same Rheumy told me that it's lupus and fibromyalgia.
According to the other doctor, I am on Prednisone but according to my Rheuma, he wants me on Hydroxychlorine, he said that Prednisone, long term, has bad side effects. Right now, I am on both...I need your help! Has anyone been on Hydroxychlorine for lupus?

Thank you for your support!
