Wednesday, June 29th was my first visit to the Rheumatologist and some additional blood work. Of course it was a symptom free day and I left the office worried that the doc would think I was a hypochondriac. Friday I received a call from her office saying she was on vacation but wanted me to start taking plaquenil and that my results showed high positive for SSARo and it was a marker for sjogrens. My Mom had that and didn't experience what I'm going through so I'm still inclined to think it might be Lupus. I go back to the doc on August 15th. I don't know if I have an official diagnosis yet of anything and was wondering if it's common for them to prescribe 400 mg of plaquenil without giving a diagnosis. Also since I started taking it I ache in my lower back, hips and thighs constantly, but this could also be a coincidence and just more of what I was experiencing before raising its ugly head again since I've slept for almost 3 days straight and still feel exhausted.
