I'm in the middle of a diagnosed of Lupus, RA or carpal tunnel.I'm taking Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg. After reviewing other peoples stories... I really wonder if I really have carpal tunnel? I started feeling much better since second day of taking medication but still having stiffness in both hand (I've only taking medication for 11 days total. I do have a follow up apt for the 30th. After reading stories it seems to me that I should be getting better day after day... maybe no carpal tunnel?
When did they start treating Carpel tunnel with plaquenil? Did I misunderstand? It sounds like you are being treated for any one of the three, so they are just trying things out? I've had two c.t. surgeries which were fixed asap. Do I need less coffee or more?
Please make sure you understand what you are taking the plaquenil for. The good news if it is working that fast, then that is extremely awesome! It took about 6 weeks for me, but then I didn't start out at 200 either.
Just make sure you understand where the c.t. comes into this mix.
