I am currently waiting for full diagnosis. I have been informed that I have got a Connective Tissue Auto Immune Disorder possibly SLE. In 2004 I had positive tests for Lupus and thick blood and was hospitalised for a week and under the consultant for a year. I was informed at that time that I may have had a FALSE Positive as a result of a viral infection and they didn't want to label me. I have had various illnesses since. I have been really unwell for the past 6 months and have been fobbed of by a number of GP's. I finally saw a Rheumatology Consultant in August and was informed by the consultant that I probably had it all along and my various illnesses were all connected. I was placed on Plaquenil just over two weeks ago. I was really amazed as my joint swelling had actually gone down. Unfortunately I woke yesterday with a headache that won't shift and a measles type rash. The out of hours GP couldn't decide as to whether or not I had a virus, flare up or reaction to Plaquenil. Has anybody else had similar reactions? I would be lovely to hear your experiences. Love & hugs xoxoxo
