    Hello SisterBigbone47,

    I'm Rob, and I'm a moderator here. I gave your introduction it's own topic title so it will be more visible than it would have been semi-hidden in that other topic. This way you'll get alot more responses and welcomes. And on that subject, I'd like to welcome you to our group. Please make yourself at home.

    Rob

    Hello and welcome sisterbigbone47

    How long have you been on the plaquenil? It can take up to 6 months before it kicks in, but once it does, it's worth the waite.

    The first thing to go on my was my feet. :lol: Sort of kick started things. I was fitted with an orthotic insert for my shoes. Wore them for close to 2 yrs. Now I find that I do not have to wear them as long as I'm wearing a good quality shoe with lots of support.

    Have you been sent for xrays on your feet?

    I also wear diabetic compression socks for the first hour when I get up. Helps to keep the swelling down and generally helps me ease into my day.
    Oh look ... a cookie
