Finally getting somewhere

I saw my new rheumatologist today. She spent 45 minutes with me, asking questions and just letting me talk! She was surprised that the last doc hadn't ordered more blood work to get a more clear picture of what was going on. So I am getting more blood work and starting on Plaquenil. Finally someone listened! I could cry Still don't have a definite diagnosis, but we're getting somewhere. Thank you for the ideas because I actually knew what to ask and what symtoms I was looking for to tell her about.

WTG Ds. Remember it can take up to 6 months for the plaquenil to kick in.

Re: Finally getting somewhere

I will definitely keep you guys posted on how things are going. You are my lifeline now! Nobody else knows how I feel. Will I feel any better after a month or so on the Plaquenil??
