I am on plaquenil over 6 months now for RA.
I woke one in middle of night with eye pain.after applying a cool compress it calmed down enough to let me sleep till morn.
I woke up with double "ghost" vision in that eye with jabs of pain here and there.
The double vision lasted 2 days.couldnt get to my eye dr because it was holiday. And friday he wasnt available so my apointment is on monday.
Double vision is gone but my eyes are very dry with pain coming and going in said eye.
I stopped the plaquenil until I see the eye dr.
Can this be from the medication?
Or another RA symptom??
