Hi all, I was started on hydrochloroquine 5 weeks ago and still haven't noticed a positive change. Still feeling horrendously tired, painful joints and hair falling out. On top of that, since I started the medication I have awful tummy pains and nausea. I get awful pains inside my ribs which i never had before. I've already lost so much weight before getting diagnosed ( beginning to look like skeleton - yuk! ) can't afford to lose anymore, so I need this nausea to go away. Will I start to feel an improvement soon and will the nausea and tummy pains go?
