Hi, Ive just been newly diagnosed and started on hydroxychloroquine last week. I don't know if it's just me but im feeling so much worse as though all my aches and pains have been increased & I feel like I've been run over by a tractor! Getting out of bed with the kids in the morning is such a struggle and im getting awful stomach cramps and wind which i didnt have before. Is this normal? ...... I'm aware that it can take 3 months before I can feel the benefits but am I supposed to be feeling worse? .....Also, after the 3 months, when my body has adjusted to the tablets do you still get flares whilst on these tablets or does it stop that happening?
