I think my title says it all really - I've been taking 400mg hydroxychloroquine for about three years, I have multiple auto immune diseases but apparently Lupus 'luke' syndrome.
Since I have been taking it I don't blister in the sun anymore, and my face just gets uneven pigmentation in the 'butterfly' area rather than a red rash.
I've often asked my dr's to clarify what lupus like syndrome is, and I'm told it's having all the symptoms but no evidence of organ damage. Does that sound reasonable?
Is it common to take 400mg hydroxychloroquine without a diagnosis? Will taking hydroxychloroquine affect future blood tests for SLE?
Thank you, and I hope you are all well x
