Hi all, was just about to post about the Plaquinel and someone else has too. it's great :bigsmile:

I am almost 6 weeks into treatment and the combination of Plaquinel, the warmer weather and the month off work I am feeling the best I have felt in years. I can't believe it's doing what it's doing. The pains in my knee are so much better, the burning is less. My hair loss has been lighter once and my fatigue has improved.

I don't feel as if I am going to flare all of the time, amazin :) Also my period is due and the crippling anxiety and weird thoughts doesn't seem to have hit as hard this time. My thinking is clearer and my memory has improved.

I can't imagine what else will happen within the next six months. I love Plaquinel :bigsmile:

Pollianna it is so nice to hear the positive stories too :) and it gives a lot of hope to the newly diagnosed and those who suspect they have lupus.

Thanks for sharing that with us and :woohoo: for you!!

Brilliant Polliana, I am starting to feel brighter on it too, but it took a bit longer... over 4 months, still I feel more positive now than I did last year which is a relief, was ready to throw myself off a cliff with the unrelenting pain. Hope it continues to improve...:)

Six weeks in and for the first time in about 8 yrs a normal period. I couldn't believe it. I was all set for it to take months and months for me to feel anything. I have been wondering why it has worked so fast for me and I relaised I am only 13 percent body fat. I know the Rheumys prescribe according to body mass and I do have a low drug tolerance . I have had a month off work so the real test will be when I start my 52hr weeks next week :worried:

Just wanted you guys new on it or about to go on it, keep an open mind. xx
