Hi, I've been on hydrochloroquine since February and it's helping my symptoms a lot. However, I now seem to be catching all the coughs and colds that my kids are getting and then my symptoms seem to escalate into a flare.......Three weeks ago one of my daughters had a cold. I got the cold which then turned into costochondritis and resulted in me being in bed in agony for 2 weeks. Ive had four days of feeling better and now my son has a sore throat and cold. I woke up this morning with a sore throat but also my whole body aching ....is this because the hydrochloroquine suppresses the immune system making us more prone to catching things or is this just lupus doing its thing?! xxx
