Lots of questions
Hello, where to begin.... Last June I began to have a little numbness in my right upper lip that has slowly gotten worse and involves my right upper lip, nostril, cheek as well as upper gums and roof of mouth. I also have occasional stinging and pins and needles. I have had fatigue, some hair loss, one sore on the roof of my mouth and recently my shoulders, knees and hips are a little achy. I have been diagnosed with lupus and am currently taking gabapentin for nerve pain, plaquinil 200 mg twice a day. My rheumatologist gave me a prescription for imuran. I haven't filled it yet. I am a little afraid of meds and this one looks like a doozy. The first thing that flags is it can increase risk of cancer. I am not having any improvement from the plaquinil. Has anyone had the facial numbness and if so what did you do?
