Welcome to the site. My name is Kathy and I have SLE, Lupus and several other auto-immune disorders. I for the life of me can not figure out why the doctor took you off of the Plaquenil. I definitely think that you need a second opinion and to see a different Rheumatologist. There will be others that will come on here and they may have more information, but in my personal opinion he should not have taken you off of the Plaquenil. Did he put you on any other medications for the Lupus? Please keep posting ok.
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
