Hi everyone, I'm Steffie, 28 from London. After years of no one particularly caring that I'm allergic to the sun and just telling me i have "some form of lupus" for the last 2 years, I've finally been diagnosed with Sjogren's last week.
It's been both a relief and a shock to hear that what I never recognised as symptoms are down to the disease- always thought I was just a lazy, tired person! now i have an excuse!
my question for you guys though is: how long until you found the Hydroxychloroquine settled.
I'm on day 5 of 200mg three times a week and I'm so tired, dizzy and slightly nauseated. I've also got some feelings of a fluttering/ache in the middle of my chest.
I'm struggling to know whats the expected side effects they warned me about and what means this medication isn't right for me.
