Hi all, just found this forum and would like to see if anyone could answer a few questions. If you don’t want to read the whole post my basic questions are 1. Has anyone else had a reaction to Aleve of mouth sores? 2. Plaquenil- only been on it for 9 days but I have abdominal pain and had an episode of anxiety and shaky feeling and headache. Will these symptoms go away with time?
So a little about me, diagnosed with Palindromic rheum really recently. I had shoulder pain since July and needed surgery for torn rotator cuff. I didn’t have the surgery until Jan so I was taking lots of Aleve. A week before surg I had to stop taking it and suddenly the canker sores on my mouth went away. Unfortunately I also got severe pain in my hips and knees making it really hard to walk. I was quite concerned as I’m usually a really active person and it felt like something was really wrong. Went to dr and found that my CRP was about 28 so I was referred to Rheum dr. I started taking Aleve again recently and now have a mouthful of canker sores so I stopped it. The Dr put me on Plaquenil but I have some side effects I think, abdominal pain, some anxiety and shaky feeling (gone now) and headache. Did anyone else have this, and did it get better with time?
18 years ago I had similar symptoms, fatigue and joint pain and a dr wanted me to start Plaquenil but I didn’t and moved to a different state and my symptoms went away until now.
Thank you for reading this post. Connie
