I'm looking for some advice. Since yesterday, I've been experiencing acute pain - first in my right hip, inner thigh and left shoulder; now it's moved to my right wrist and I'm getting stabbing pains in my wrist and hand. I cant close my right hand or use it all. I barely slept last night and tonight is looking to be the same.
I'm on Plaquenil, although have to admit to being a little inconsistent in taking it lately. Added to that I've been tapering Prednisone from 5 gradually to 0. I've taken Plaquenil and Naproxen today and Paracetamol.
I'm still in a lot of pain and don't know what to do to alleviate it. Any advice appreciated! Also, is this a normal occurrence that i should come to expect? I've been fairly lucky so far in that I was diagnosed a year ago and have only had relatively minor flares - compared to this one at least!
Thanks for any help anyone can offer!
