    Reading your thoughts about diagnosis were just like reading my own. Even down to the pots, which ended up not being pots. That feeling of light headed and dizzy when I stood eventually went away, after about 2 months of Plaquenil. It’s been a lifesaver for me. Hang in there, better days are ahead. 🙂

      I’ve heard great things about Plaquenil. They say if you can make it through the initial side effects that it really makes a huge difference in your quality of life.
      I actually looked last night, and saw depression is a common side effect. It’s nice to hear this is only temporary, because right now my body is staging an active revolt against me haha

        It is the weirdest thing about 3 weeks into my Plaquenil therapy, I woke up one day and the anxiety was gone. Along with the aches and pains and the pots symptoms, Raynaulds and a whole slush of other nasty stuff and I felt almost normal. 3 weeks isn’t much compared to the years it seems to take for a concrete diagnosis. I had more side effect from dhea than from Plaquenil. It was freaking awesome too, but makes ya chubby. I can’t even tell I’m taking meds now. It’s awesome. You’ll get there! Oh!
        Have they checked your iron? Or vit d? After they added those to my day, I really felt better. Seems like those two are commonly low in lupus patients too. I think they both helped with my cardiac symptoms. Make ya feel like superwoman. But not in the bitchy prednisone kind of way! 😝
