hi vernb! First welcome to our group. Since you have only been on the plaquinel since last month you are not going to see much improvement from it yet. It takes a few months to kick in before you will see real results. Are you on any other medications? You have typical lupus symptoms. It most likely is going to take some time to start to feel good again because I'm sure they may change your meds around once they get more lab work completed.
Lupus is a road of ups and downs but know that we are here for you and we will help you through it. Hang in there
