Five months since first symptoms. Was doing fine controlling RA with just the HXQ and occasional NSAIDS. Then a week ago caught a heavy cold, symptoms flared up and I now feel very down and anxious. This is very unlike me as normally positive and upbeat person who keeps everyone else going. I've read that HXQ can cause mood changes. Apparently (apart from small known risks to vision) HXQ has relatively few side effects but I definitely don't like this one. Anyhow I'm hoping the flare will subside and I will soon feel more upbeat as this doesn't feel nice at all!
