Question Stiff rubber gloves

I have already been diagnosed with having lupus, but, I wonder, does anyone out there ever feel like you are wearing stiff rubber gloves over your arms or arms and hands and fingers? I am hurting right now and I am really wondering is this still just the affects of the lupus? It sometimes gets so bad that I just don't want to clean or anything.Lately I have been kind of stressed out, so I wondered if I put less stress on myself...will the pain go away? I am assuming this, but, I do not know.I have "mild" lupus,but, it really hurts. I am thinking possibly of taking the plaquenil.I have heard that it takes about three to four months to kick in.Is there anyone who takes it, and how did it work for you? Also, are there any side affects and does it help to grow your hair back? Just curious....Thank you.
