Is this a flare?

After being diagnosed in Nov and starting Plaquenil in Jan , things have been pretty "normal" for me. About 3 weeks ago I got shingles. I had a pretty mild case (I was put on anti virals) Since then I have been feeling pretty run down and tired (more than usual. I'm always tired) My hair has begun to fall out more again(it had slowed down but never stopped)I'm getting rashes again and I have been having mornings that I wake up sore everywhere. My wrists and hands hurt some days so much that filing my nails hurts! Today I began feeling extremely tired, I have a huge sore in my mouth. my throat hurts, I have a swollen gland (left side of my neck) and I just came home from emerg where they tell me I have a bladder infection! What is going on! I haven't had so much as a cold in ...can't remember when! Anyone have any insight? Is the Plaquenil not working? What's normal for this disease? Maybe just "end of the school year" stress?(I work with sp needs children in school) Should I go see my Rheumy, or just "ride it out". I see him in August. I am so sick of going to the Dr....Knot
