Hi has anyone suffered from a severe drop in sugar levels while taking hydrochloroquine? My doc has upped my dosage as I am still getting pain, but over the past few weeks I have nearly passed out due to I think my sugar levels have dropped. Shaking, cold sweats, feeling sick and feel like I am going to pass out. I read up on it and the medication can cause your sugar levels to drop. I now carry dextrose tablets with me just in case it happens again but was wondering if anyone else has had this. My rheumatologist thinks I have psoriatic arthritis. I don't have psoriasis all over my body its just on my fingers. when I have a flare the skin around my nails blister and flake. We have psoriasis in the family. He is also checking my thyroid. The only other thing I have noticed is my skin has become very sensitive after a shower/bath. I don't have it too hot, haven't changed the shower gel etc so it cant be that. When I get out of the shower/bath it feels like my skin is on fire and itches like mad especially on my legs.
Any advice would be great
