OK - I have a question. I've been gaining weight steadily since I was diagnosed. Like at least 50 lbs in about a year and a half. I am doing nothing different .... but the doctor tells me the weight gain has nothing to do with the disease. I'm on plaquenil. Do I exercise? No .... when I'm finally feeling peppy enough to do so I have to go back to work (middle school). So - IS my weight gain due to the meds/disease?
